Representative Text

1 “From glory to glory” O wonderful change,
How marvelous, gracious and broad!
Translated by grace from the kingdom of sin,
To dwell in the kingdom of God.

“From glory to glory,” O this is His way!
From darkness of midnight to brightness of day;
“From glory to glory” till Jesus shall come,
Then glory eternal at home.

2 “From glory to glory” He leadeth me on,
Till fulness of glory I know!
O foretaste of heaven to feel His great love
Constraining my life here below. [Refrain]

3 “From glory to glory” His promise is sure,
No word He has spoken shall fail;
Some day I expect heaven’s glory to share,
When Jesus has lifted the veil. [Refrain]
