Glory to Christ on high

1
Glory to Christ on high!
Let praises fill the sky!
  Praise ye His name:
He all our sorrows bore;
Angels His name—adore,
And saints cry evermore,
  “Worthy the Lamb!”
2
All they around the throne
Cheerfully join in one,
  Praising His name:
We who have known His blood
Sealing our peace with God,
Spread His dear name abroad;
  Worthy the Lamb!
3
Join all the human race
Our Lord, God’s Christ, to bless,
  Praise ye His name:
In Him we will rejoice,
Making a cheerful noise,
Saying with heart and voice,
  “Worthy the Lamb!”
4
Though we must change our place,
Our hearts shall never cease
  Praising His name:
To Him we’ll tribute bring,
Laud Him, our gracious King,
And without ceasing, sing,
  “Worthy the Lamb!”

James Allen (1734-1804).

The writer was the son of Oswald Allen, and was born at Gayle, Yorkshire, England, on June 24, 1734. Just how he was led to Christ is not known but early in his conversion he became aware to the flagrant immorality in the Anglican Church and became an “itinerant” preacher after embracing Methodist beliefs. Once when “field preaching” a mob threatened his life and he was saved by the local magistrate who was an old friend of his. One of his hymns is a real challenge to the conscience:-

“Sinners, will you scorn the message? ” Charles Wesley says of him (October 17, 1756), ”A young preacher came to spend the evening with me at Mr. Grimshaw’s. I found love for him, and wished that all our sons in the Gospel were equally modest and discreet. ”

In Scotland he and Christopher Batty compiled a hymn book. It included 71 of Mr. Allen’s hymns which was 50% of the book. He returned to his birth place at Gayle and there continued to preach the gospel until his death on October 31, 1804.
