An expression of praise to God, especially a short hymn sung as part of a Christian worship service.
in Christian worship: A hymn expressing praise and honor to God; a form of praise to God designed to be sung or chanted by the choir or the congregation
Origin: [LL. doxologia, Gr. , fr. praising, giving glory; opinion, estimation, glory, praise (from to think, imagine) + to speak: cf. F. doxologie. See Dogma, and Legend.]
A doxology is a short hymn of praises to God in various Christian worship services, often added to the end of canticles, psalms, and hymns. The tradition derives from a similar practice in the Jewish synagogue, where some version of the Kaddish serves to terminate each section of the service.
