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.
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!
O perfect redemption, the purchase of blood! To ev'ry believer the promise of God; The vilest offender who truly believes That monment from Jesus a pardon receives.
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.
