World of Glory is a 1991 Swedish short film written and directed by Roy Andersson. Its original Swedish title is Härlig är jorden, which means "Lovely is the Earth", and is the Swedish title of the hymn "Fairest Lord Jesus". The narrative portrays a man in white make-up who guides the viewer through his life in a bleakly stylised world. The film was Andersson's critical comeback to cinema, after many years in advertising.

A man is standing in a subway car, his face dirty with soot. In his right hand he carries a plastic bag with documents, or rather, the charred leftovers of them. In a corridor a man is clinging desperately to the legs of the boss who just fired him. He is screaming: "I've been here for thirty years!" In a coffee shop someone is waiting for his father, who just burned his furniture company for insurance money. Traffic jams and self-flagellating stock brokers are filling up the streets while an economist, desperate for a solution to the problem of work becoming too expensive, gazes into the crystal ball of a scryer. Everything and everyone is going somewhere but their goal and its meaning have disappeared along the way.

There is no central plot, but some of the vignettes connect loosely. All the stories show the essential humanity of the characters and address themes of life, existence and happiness.

Une réflexion sur la vie humaine dans toute sa beauté et sa cruauté, sa splendeur et sa banalité. Transportés dans un rêve, nous sommes guidés par la douce voix narrative d'une Shéhérazade. Les moments non pertinents prennent le même sens que les événements historiques : un couple flotte dans une colonie dévastée par la guerre ; alors qu’il accompagne sa fille à une fête d’anniversaire, un père s’arrête pour attacher ses chaussures sous une pluie battante ; des adolescentes dansent devant un café ; une armée vaincue marche vers un camp de prisonniers.
