duh

I can not read Chinese, but  if I tell you what it means in English I think it will help. Then you can translate it correctly.

"Glory be to God" just means that the person is an active Christian and they use a simple "catch phrase"  that is common to people with similar beliefs or ideas.
So it is a redundant phrase and not so filled with meaning.

The more literal "translation" is to give the honor of your accomplishments to a higher power. If you take credit for your accomplishments
then that demonstrates "pride" ... the more proud you are of your self, the more "alone" you are in that you are isolating yourself from your creator... the benevolent entity that created all mankind and through kindness allows us all to live out our lives with free will.
So, life is a series of choices. You can choose to be humble and to benefit your fellow man... or you can choose to be proud and
vein and take credit for your accomplishments
Literally "Glory be to God" is an admission of your powerlessness and assigning honor to a higher power... in this case, described in the one word "God"
