To God be the glory, great things He hath done

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 our redemption to win,
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;
Oh, come to the Father, through Jesus the Son,
  And give Him the glory; great things He hath done.
Oh, 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.
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 transport when Jesus we see.

Of the thousands of hymns played for HIM, this one means so much. It is the most wonderful words put to music to Honor GOD our FATHER and the many gifts of Life HE has given to us.

HIS most precious gift of HIS Only SON born of a woman, MARY not born to kings and princes but to common people who Loved HIM.

Knowing full well that at a time HIS SON, OUR LORD and SAVIOUR JESUS CHRIST would die for all of our sins to reunite us once and for all with GOD Our FATHER

May all who find HIM know HIM, LOVE HIM, as HE loves you, may HE bless you and yours a thousand times a thousand times.

Be always of good cheer for even in our moment of darkness, know HIS words... and lo I shall be with you even unto the end of the world.

Frances Jane Crosby was born March 24, 1820, Brewster, Putnam County, New York and died February 12, 1915, Bridgeport, Connecticut. She was buried in Mountain Grove Cemetery, Bridgeport, Connecticut. On her tombstone are the words, “Aunt Fanny“ and “Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine. Oh what a foretaste of glory divine. ” “Blessed Assurance, ” one of her best known songs, appeared in at least 937 hymnals.

One of the the most prolific hymnodists in history, Fanny was the wife of organist Alexander Van Alstyne. He was known as one of the finest organists in New York. Like Fanny, he too was blind and taught at the New York Institute for the blind.

Though blinded by an incompetent doctor at six weeks of age, she wrote over 8000 hymns. About her blindness, Fanny said:

“It seemed intended by the blessed providence of God that I should be blind all my life, and I thank Him for the dispensation. If perfect earthly sight were offered me tomorrow I would not accept it. I might not have sung hymns to the praise of God if I had been distracted by the beautiful and interesting things about me. ”

In her lifetime, Fanny Crosby was one of the best known women in the United States. To this day the vast majority of American hymnals contain her work. On her 85th birthday. American president Grover Cleveland wrote to Fanny:

“My dear friend:

It is more than fifty years ago that our acquaintance and friendship and began; and ever since that time I have watched your continuous and interested labor in uplifting humanity, and pointing out the way to an appreciation of God’s goodness and mercy.

Though your labors have, I know, brought you abundant rewards in your consciousness of good accomplished, those who have known of your works and sympathize with your noble purposes owe it to themselves that you are apprized of their remembrance of these things. I am, therefore, exceedingly gratified to learn that your eighty-fifth birthday is to be celebrated with the demonstration of this remembrance. As one proud to call you an old friend, I desire to be early and congratulating you on your long life of usefulness, and wishing you in the years yet to be added to you, the peace and comfort born of the love of God.

Yours very sincerely,

Grover Cleveland”

Some of her publications include:

• The Bind Girl and Other

Poems, 1844

• Monterey and Other Poems, 1851

• A Wreath of Colombia’s Flowers 1858

• Bells at Evening and Other Verses, 1897

We love singing this hymn!

Third, we may classify the hymns by the sentiment expressed in the hymns. This is the deepest and most important matter in choosing a hymn. The sentiment of a hymn is the tender feeling of that hymn. The more tender a hymn is, the deeper is its sentiment. Two hymns may have the same subject and be under the same subdivision, but there may be a difference between them in sentiment. For example, Hymns, #39 and #52 are both hymns on the worship of the Father, but they have very different sentiments. Hymns, #39 is a good hymn that is full of excitement. Singing this hymn may make us want to shout. In contrast, Hymns, #52 is a very tender and fine hymn, perhaps the most tender and fine hymn in the section on the worship of the Father. If we study and pray over this hymn, we will sense how deep and tender its feeling is.
