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.

This wonderful hymn, its lyric snd music repeatedly echoes my wonder at and confession of the faithfulness of God in my life and in the life of my loved oned "To God be tbe glory, great things He has done..." What a revelation, what an inspiration! The vilest offender who truly believes receives pardon from Jesus. The song comes to me each time I worship. I have been singing it since past 1 am PST. I will sing it till I sleep off, for the rest of the night.

I'm 80 in a few days time so you won't have to guess why this hymn means so much to me. I woke this morning really early, just after 4am, and this hymn was the first thing I thought about. I couldn't remember all the words, but I googled it and here I am. Praising the Lord and giving thanks.

This song really gives a rapport between man and our Father in heaven. When you meditate perfectively on this tune, You will understand that, you really have to give thanks to God for His forever love and care. God bless the composer and the organist who played this song. Shalom

This song is the entire essence of God's love for creating us in His Image and likeness with a complete package of salvation included.

This hymn is the summary of the Redemption of Christ's believers. It also show that the blood of Jesus Christ is the greatest treasure between God and human. What a love from God and His son Jesus the Christ for such great treasure to have been extended for mere sinful humans.


Praise The Lord!!!

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.
