To God Be The Glory

January 12, 2015

“To God Be The Glory” is one of the hymns written by Fanny Crosby. She was blind from the age of six weeks old, when a doctor applied the wrong medication to her eyes.
She was well educated, became a teacher, married and wrote many hymns that are in our hymnals today.
She lived to be 95 years old and her love for the Lord is evident in the words of her many songs. A good example to us how a person can look at the bright side of life even through hardships and adversity.
1 To God be the glory, great things he has done;
so loved he the world that he gave us his Son,
who yielded his life an atonement for sin,
and opened the lifegate that we may go in.
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord; let the earth hear his voice!
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord; let the people rejoice!
O come to the Father through Jesus the Son,
and give him the glory; great things he has done.
2 O perfect redemption, the purchase of blood,
to every believer the promise of God;
the vilest offender who truly believes,
that moment from Jesus a pardon receives.
3 Great things he has taught us, great things he has done,
and great our rejoicing through Jesus the Son;
but purer and higher and greater will be
our wonder, our gladness, when Jesus we see.

John 11:4
When Jesus heard that, he said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby.
