Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

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

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!

Glory to God the Father! Glory to God the Father!
Glory, Glory, Glory to God the Father!

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!

Glory to God the Father! Glory to God the Father!
Glory, Glory, Glory to God the Father!

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!

Glory to God the Father! Glory to God the Father!
Glory, Glory, Glory to God the Father!

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!

Glory to God the Father! Glory to God the Father!
Glory, Glory, Glory to God the Father!
