Published in 6 hymnals

Representative Text

1. Glory! Glory! God Almighty!
Thou of heaven and earth the King!
Let the Prince of darkness tremble,
While the hills and mountains ring
With the sound of myriad voices,
In an anthem full and free,
Singing praises, God eternal,
Singing praises unto thee.

2. From the islands of the ocean,
Set like jewels in the deep;
From the lands far to the northward,
Where the snows of ages sleep.
From each land that claims the rising
And the setting of the sun
Voices come to swell the chorus
Which is only now begun.

3. Glory to the King of Glory,
He who rules the sea and land
He who holds the mighty waters
In the hollow of his hand!
Praise him! all ye people, praise him!
Join ye in the glad refrain;
Jesus is o'er all victorious,
And he shall forever reign.
