Song Setting: “Gloria Patri”

I continue my quest to memorize Latin prayers by writing catchy little tunes for them. (Well, I think they're catchy. But then, I'm memorizing these suckers, so I'm singing them a lot.)
Today, it's the original Latin version of the "Glory Be", or as all the cool kids call it, the Doxologia Minor.

("The Eentsy-Weentsy Praise Song" is probably not the translation of this that one should choose, but I feel a filk coming on that is to that effect. So you see that these catchy tunes could be a lot catchier if I were evil and stuck to tunes in the public domain.)

Also, I've again broken up the lines to reflect how I've broken them up into lines of the song. This one is probably as melismatic as I will get.

Gloria
Patri, et Filio, et Spiritui Sancto.
Sicut erat
in principio,
et nunc, et semper, et in
saecula saeculorum.
Amen.
