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.

They changed the words from "an atonement for sin" to my redemption to win. That is wrong. That is not how it was written. I don't think Fanny Crosby would care for that at all. People need to know that Jesus died because of and for our sins!!

One of the most melodious praises deservedly scripted and enthusiastically rendered to be enjoyed by the entire Christendom.

To God be the glory. Praise the Lord my soul, praise Him for His mercies sake. My soul hymn. Blessings to the composer.

The words atonement for SIN.

Have been replaced.

People need to know the word sin.

So they can see God's payment of Jesus's blood for their sin was the cost to purchase their souls.

The song just came into my heart this morning. After receiving a suck letter, I’ve been singing since morning I just know God has something better for me. He's been there for me. I can't deny it and He will. Thank You Jesus.

What a transformational song. I love this song, it touches the soul and the spirit of man. And if one hold onto this song it will always renew one’s spirit.



Just thank you! Praise the Lord. ¡Gloria a Dios! Alabad al gran Rey!

Thanking GOD for this song. Singing at bedtime to a grandson who is undecided if he believes in our heavenly Father. Please be a prayer warrior for this precious boy.

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.
