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.

Jesus Christ the same yesterday today and forever. A life without JESUS CHRIST is an EMPTY LIFE.

Thanks for collating all these hymns together.

I noted an error in the first stanza:

Who yielded His life our redemption to win,

The original version reads:

Who yielded His life AS ATONEMENT FOR SIN,

Please preserve the composer's original inspired version.

Thank you.

I am only praising God today. He is worthy of praise! Not asking for anything today as we tend to do.. He knows what I need, before I even ask. Just thanking Him today for all the blessing He has given me. Praise you Father God !

To Him be all glory and adoration. A life without Jesus Christ is a life doomed for crisis. Anyone that has Jesus Christ in his has everything with fullness of joy always. Praise His holy name. Hallelujah.

Awesome indeed. No matter what nations are facing today He remains God and Him be the glory forever. Amen

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.
