695. To God be the glory!

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.

Refrain:
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 offender who truly believes,
that moment from Jesus a pardon receive. [Refrain]

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 rapture, when Jesus we see. [Refrain]
