Hymn-ful Sundays! "To God be the Glory"

We're back with Fanny Crosby again! This American hymnwriter wrote many many popular hymns that we still are singing almost 150 years later! This week's is a hymn of praise to God for all that He has done.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Fanny Crosby

Yes we should give God the glory. Why? Because He has done great things! The greatest of these is sending His son for our salvation. So let us praise the Lord! Let His name be heard across the earth! Let us rejoice!

Be blessed and shine, and give Him the glory!
