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.

I woke up this morning with this song in my mind, after I had a dream where God delivered me from the hands of enemies.So, I decided to search for the full lyrics. Thanking God for the great things He has done for giving us His only begotten Son to die for us and He is always there for us to give us victory over our enemies. Hallelujah!

I just woke up from a dream which someone wrote this song for me and we were singing it.

Oh to You be the Glory my Father in Heaven, Whom through Your beloved Son Jesus Christ has saved us from eternal damnation to eternal life. Great is Thy faithfulness.

Love You God.

This song as it is rendered here, is a travesty. Fanny Crosby believed in the atonement. the lyrics to verse one actually are

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.

I know that there are many contemporary praise songs that have great meaning. Yet this old hymn is for me the greatest praise song of all in shaping my faith, hope, and gratitude to God...

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.
