Representative Text

1 From mountain top and dewy vale,
From temples old and hoary,
Proclaim redemption’s wondrous tale,
And give to Jesus glory.

Give to Jesus glory, give to Jesus glory,
Proclaim redemption’s wondrous tale,
And give to Jesus glory.

2 From break of day to starry night,
Ring out salvation’s story;
And when returns the morning light,
Still give to Jesus glory. [Refrain]

3 High in the Heav’n of heav’ns above,
Where angel hosts adore Thee,
We’ll sing the Father’s matchless love,
And give to Jesus glory. [Refrain]

4 Oh, sinner ere perdition’s waves
Shall roll in fury o’er thee,
Come unto Jesus Christ who saves,
And give to Him the glory. [Refrain]

Clark, William Henry. (Racine, Wisconsin, April 8, 1854--November 8, 1925, Rome, New York). Free Methodist. In his infancy, his parents returned to their former home in New York State, where his mother soon died, and his father married a close friend of hers, who forecast, after William's conversion in 1873, that one day he would be a bishop. He served the Susquehanna Conference of his denomination as a pastor and district superintendent from 1876 until 1919, when his stepmother's prediction came true. Meanwhile, he had been a member of the joint commission of the Free and Wesleyan Methodist Churches which compiled the Hymnal of 1910, and contributed some items to it. He died in office, requesting no eulogy at his funeral. --Arlene Clyde… Go to person page >
