To God Be The Glory

Verse 1

To God be the glory, great things He hath done;

So loved He the world that He gave us His Son,

Who yielded His life an atonement for sin,

And opened the life gate that all may go in.
Refrain

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 hath done.
Verse 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.
(Refrain)
Verse 3

Great things He hath taught us, great things He hath done,

And great our rejoicing through Jesus the Son;

But purer, and higher, and greater will be

Our wonder, our rapture, when Jesus we see.

This is one of the hymns written by Fanny Crosby about 1875 and was popular in England. Ira Sankey introduced it to America in the D. L. Moody revivals but it became popular when Cliff Barrows used it in Billy Graham’s London crusade and then in the crusade in Nashville, TN. 

Many of the older great hymns are no longer being sung in our churches as newer music is being introduced more frequently due to modern media. New is good but let us not forget the old hymns that have stood the test of time and honored God in ways that some of the newer songs lack.

Romans 16:27  To God only wise, be glory through Jesus Christ for ever. Amen.
