TO GOD BE THE GLORY! #ThursdayHymns

Today we begin a new series on Kingdom Culture NG tagged #ThursdayHymns, where every Thursday, we share a hymn.

Hymns are one of the most powerful ways of ministering to God and also getting refreshed in His presence. Thousands of hymns have been composed over the years, and no matter the age of the hymn, whenever sang, their power can always be felt.

Today we begin with the hymn “TO GOD BE THE GLORY” written by Franny Crosby and published in the year 1875. This is a hymn thanking God for what He did by sending Jesus to die for us and atone for our sins.

Through the sacrifice of Jesus, and the shedding of His blood, we are redeemed in Christ and restored back to fellowship with our Father. For this great love today we say “Praise The Lord”. Do I hear an Hallelujah????

Let the words of this song speak to you and fill your heart with God’s Love. Remember the scripture John 3:16;

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

Here are the lyrics of the song, and also find below a powerful rendition of the hymn at the Royal Albert Hall, London

TO GOD BE THE GLORY

Stanza 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.

Stanza 2
O perfect redemption, the purchase of blood,
To every believer the promise of God;
The vilest offender who truly believes,
That moment from Jesus a pardon receives.

(Refrain)

Stanza 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)

God bless you.
