1 "For God so loved!" O wondrous theme!
O wondrous key to wondrous scheme!
A Savior sent to sinful men -
Glory to God the Father!

Chorus:
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! [Chorus]

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! [Chorus]

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! [Chorus]

5 By God exalted from the dead,
He reigns on high the living head
Of ev'ry soul for whom He bled -
Glory to God the Father! [Chorus]
