Everlasting glory unto Jesus be

Representative Text

1 Everlasting glory
Unto Jesus be!
Sing aloud the story
Of His victory!
How He left the splendor
Of His home on high,
Came in love so tender,
On the cross to die.

Everlasting glory
Unto Jesus be!
Sing aloud the story
Of His victory!

2 Yes! He came from heaven,
Suffered in our stead;
Praise to Him be given,
“Firstborn from the dead!”
Jesus, meek and lowly,
Came the lost to save;
He, the Victim holy,
Triumphed o'er the grave. [Refrain]

3 Christ is Lord of glory,
Sing we now today;
Tell abroad the story;
Own His rightful sway!
Sing aloud; and never
Cease to spread His fame;
Triumph, now and ever,
In the Savior's Name. [Refrain]
