The To God Be The Glory hymn was written by Fanny Crosby and sang to a melody by William Howard Doane.
The lyrics are inspired by Galatians 1:4-5,
4 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: 5 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
