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 our blessed Redeemer; thank You Father for Jesus' obedience in going all the way; paying with His life for every lawless act we have committed, are committing and will ever commit. Thank You gracious God that Your Word alone has the wonder working power to change lives into those which reflect Your unconditional love and forgiveness in this depraved world.

Couldn't sleep. Came down to the study and found this beautiful Hymn again. It makes sense to anyone that the only way to God is through God - no one else, no church, no saint, no priest, "O come to the Father through Jesus the Son". Thank you for reminding me that Grace is God giving us what we do not deserve and Mercy is God not giving us what we really deserve. Thank You Lord Jesus for saving me. Thank You Father that You are "Abba", my Daddy, love, Paul.

Thank you.... I was feeling sad... I remember this song as a little girl. I forgot the lyrics. It still has so much healing power to me when I sing it, alone. Haha, never alone... to my Lord! Thanks again. God bless... to God be the glory! ❤

Praise to God... Such a nice song... The only song I keep on singing make me feel good and happy.

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.
