To God Be The Glory hymn

The lyrics are inspired by Galatians 1:4-5,

Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father: To whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

Galatians 1:4-5

What are the great things had the Lord done?

Not noisy events like thunder and lightning. Not the creation of the highest mountains or deepest oceans. Not the breath-taking sunrise and sunset.

But to send Jesus as an atonement for us. To give up His life to redeem ours. To defeat death that we might enter the gate of Heaven.

God deserve glory because He gave us His son.

To God Be The Glory Lyrics

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

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

Praise the Lord Praise the Lord
Let the earth hear His voice
Praise the Lord Praise the Lord
Let the people rejoice
O come to the Father
Through Jesus the Son
And give Him the glory
Great things He hath done
