1857. Glory to God the Father

1. For God so loved! Oh, wondrous theme!
Oh! wondrous key to wondrous scheme!
A Savior sent to sinful men—
Glory to God the Father!

Refrain
Glory to God the Father!
Glory to God the Father!
Glory, glory, glory to God the Father!

2. In love God gave, in love Christ came,
That man might know the Father’s name,
And in the Son salvation claim—
Glory to God the Father! [Refrain]

3. As man He tarried here below,
The pow’r and love of God to show;
To help and heal all human woe—
Glory to God the Father! [Refrain]

4. Upon the cross His life He gave,
His people from their sins to save;
For them descended to the grave—
Glory to God the Father! [Refrain]

5. By God exalted from the dead,
He reigns on high, the living Head
Of every soul for whom He bled—
Glory to God the Father! [Refrain]
