~To God Be the Glory

 

   If a hymn die, can it live again? 

   The life-story of “To God Be the Glory” proves that the answer is “yes!”

   Originally composed in America sometime before 1875, it was almost immediately forgotten in its native land.  In 1954, however, “To God Be The Glory” was rediscovered and acclaimed as a new favorite

   We introduced the hymn during the early days of those meetings in Harringay Area, England.  As a result, Billy Graham asked that we repeat it often because he was impressed with the enthusiastic participation of the audience.  In the closing weeks of the crusade it became our theme hymn, repeated almost every night. 

   The words well expressed our praise to God, who was doing wondrous things in Britain. Of all the songs that have been popularized through crusade activity, we are most happy about this one.

To God Be the Glory [1]

1           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.

Chorus  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.

2           O perfect redemption, the purchase of blood,

To ev’ry believer the promise of God;

The vilest offenders who truly obey,

That moment may enter the heavenly way,

3           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.
