Glory, glory to the Father

1
Glory, glory to the Father!
  Glory, glory to the Son!
Glory, glory to the Spirit!
  Glory to the Three in One!
  Let us praise Him! Let us praise Him!
Praise our God, the Three in One!
Give Him glory; give Him glory!
  Wondrous things for us our God hath done.
2
Praise the Father who has purposed!
  Praise the Son who all has done!
Praise the Spirit who transmitteth!
  Praise the Three who work as one!

I like the original lyrics, there is so much biblical truth packed into just a few short verses, We sing this hymn quite often at our church and with a little spirited accompaniment from the pianist it is enjoyed by young and old alike. But most of all we hope by our Father Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

Here are the complete lyrics:

When I saw the cleansing fountain

Open wide for all my sin,

I obeyed the Spirit’s wooing,

When He said, “Wilt thou be clean?”

Refrain

I will praise Him! I will praise Him!

Praise the Lamb for sinners slain;

Give Him glory, all ye people,

For His blood can wash away each stain.

Though the way seems straight and narrow,

All I claimed was swept away;

My ambitions, plans and wishes,

At my feet in ashes lay.

Refrain

Then God’s fire upon the altar

Of my heart was set aflame;

I shall never cease to praise Him

Glory, glory to His Name!

Refrain

Blessèd be the Name of Jesus!

I’m so glad He took me in;

He’s forgiven my transgressions,

He has cleansed my heart from sin.

Refrain

Glory, glory to the Father!

Glory, glory to the Son!

Glory, glory to the Spirit!

Glory to the Three in One!

Glory to the Three in One!

To know the hymns we have to know some of the crucial points of the contents of the hymns. First, we must know some of the hymns on the blessing and experience of the Triune God. The word blessing is used here not to refer to the good things the Triune God has given us but to the praise, the blessing, we offer to Him. An example of a good hymn on the blessing of the Triune God is #7—"Glory, glory, to the Father!"—and an example of a good hymn on the experience of the Triune God is #608—"What mystery, the Father, Son, and Spirit." We also need to know hymns in the categories of the praise of the Father and the praise of the Lord.
