442. 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 receives. [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 transport, when Jesus we see. [Refrain]
