A doxology [from the Greek doxa, glory (a mistaken signification adopted by hebrew scholars) + logia, declarations, sayings] 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.
