A Doxology is a hymn of prayer or praise to God, most often used in liturgical services.

There are many doxologies in the Church. The doxology most commonly heard in Protestant churches is "Praise God, from Whom all blessings flow", sung to the traditional melody Old Hundredth:

Praise God, from Whom all blessings flow,
Praise Him, all creatures here below,
Praise Him above, ye heavenly host,
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Amen.

In the Roman Catholic tradition, the greater doxology is the recitation or singing of "Glory to God in the Highest," and the lesser doxology is "Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit."
