What does "world without end" mean?

Why is the statement “world without end” in the Glory be.

I thought through revelation that the world with end.

Any thoughts?

Dear Cure,

“Per omnia saecula saeculorum” litteraly means “for ages of ages.” This is what “world without end” is supposed to mean.
The current Litturgy of the Hours translates it: “forever.”
