From glory unto glory!

Full Text

1 From glory unto glory! Be this our joyous song;
As on the King's own highway, We bravely march along.
From glory unto glory! O word of stirring cheer,
As dawns the solemn brightness of another glad New Year.

2 From glory unto glory! What great things He hath done,
What wonders He hath shown us, what triumphs He hath won!
From glory unto glory! What mighty blessings crown
The lives for which our Lord laid His own so freely down!

3 The fullness of His blessing encompasseth our way;
The fullness of His promises crowns every brightening day;
The fullness of His glory is beaming from above,
While more and more we learn to know the fullness of His love.

4 And closer yet and closer the golden bonds shall be,
Uniting all who love our Lord in pure sincerity;
And wider yet and wider shall the circling glory glow,
As more and more are taught of God that mighty love to know.

5 Oh, let our adoration for all that He hath done,
Peal out beyond the stars of God, while voice and life are one;
And let our consecration be real, deep, and true:
Oh, even now our hearts shall bow, and joyful vows renew.

6 Now onward, ever onward, from strength to strength we go,
While grace for grace abundantly shall from His fullness flow,
To glory's full fruition, from glory's foretaste here,
Until His very presence crown our happiest New Year.

Amen.

Author: Frances R. Havergal

Havergal, Frances Ridley, daughter of the Rev. W. H. Havergal, was born at Astley, Worcestershire, Dec. 14, 1836. Five years later her father removed to the Rectory of St. Nicholas, Worcester. In August, 1850, she entered Mrs. Teed's school, whose influence over her was most beneficial. In the following year she says, "I committed my soul to the Saviour, and earth and heaven seemed brighter from that moment." A short sojourn in Germany followed, and on her return she was confirmed in Worcester Cathedral, July 17, 1853. In 1860 she left Worcester on her father resigning the Rectory of St. Nicholas, and resided at different periods in Leamington, and at Caswall Bay, Swansea, broken by visits to Switzerland, Scotland, and North Wales.

Notes

From glory unto glory. Frances R. Havergal. [Personal Consecration—New Year.] Written at Winterdyne, Dec. 24, 1873, first printed as a New Year's leaflet, Jan. first, 1874, and then published in her work Under the Surface, March, 1874, in 20 stanzas of 4 lines. Concerning this hymn the author says that it was the reflection of "that flash of electric light, when I first saw clearly the blessedness of true consecration, Dec. 2, 1873. I could not have written the hymn before. It is a wonderful word from 'glory unto glory.' May we more and more claim and realize all that is folded up in it." The sequel to this hymn is, "Far more exceeding," written April, 1876, first printed in Our Own Fireside; and then published in Under His Shadow, Nov. 1879 (HAV. MSS.).
