Representative Text

1 All glorious God, what hymns of praise
Shall our transported voices raise!
What ardent love and zeal are due,
While heaven stands open to our view!

2 Once we were fallen, and O how low!
Just on the brink of endless woe:
When Jesus, from the realms above,
Borne on the wings of boundless love,

3 Scattered the shades of death and night,
And spread around His heavenly light:
By Him what wondrous grace is shown
To souls impoverish'd and undone!

4 He shows, beyond these mortal shores,
A bright inheritance as ours;
Where saints in light our coming wait
To share their holy, happy state.

Philip Doddridge (b. London, England, 1702; d. Lisbon, Portugal, 1751) belonged to the Non-conformist Church (not associated with the Church of England). Its members were frequently the focus of discrimination. Offered an education by a rich patron to prepare him for ordination in the Church of England, Doddridge chose instead to remain in the Non-conformist Church.

Notes

All glorious God, what hymns of praise. P. Doddridge. [Praise!] In the "D. MSS." this hymn is headed, "Of being prepared for the inheritance of the Saints in light. A song of praise for Col. i. 12," and is dated "Dec. 13, 1736," No. xxix. The same text was given in J. Orton's ed. of Doddridge's (posthumous) Hymns, &c, 1755, No. 298, in 5 stanzas of 4 lines, and, with slight changes, in J. D. Humphreys's edition of the same, 1839, No. 324. Although a hymn of praise of more than usual merit in many ways, it is rarely given in the English collections, and found in but a few of the American hymnals.
