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.

My soul rejoices whenever I hear this wonderful, old hymn! At this time in history, when most church services sing worship songs [which are equally fulfilling and uplifting], I am filled with grateful wonder that there are people throughout the world who know and sing this him in 2022. Not many traditional church services include this hymn any longer. This morning, this chorus came to me and I happily sang it to our great God in worship for Him, who made my very existence and eternal future possible. Praise the Lord!

The most splendid worship song. It tells of the power of Jesus Christ in clearing the sinners of their sins if they put their trust in him .

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.

Thank you Lord for giving us your son and everything you have done from the bottom of my heart

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.
