Representative Text

1. Glory, glory, God is our heavenly Father;
Thro’ His love He gave us His only Son,
To redeem us, heirs of His glory forever,
Heav’n and earth adore Him, the Holy One.

Sing, O sing! Sing of the gracious Redeemer;
Sing, O sing! His marvelous power make known.
Praise Him, praise Him, He is our Shepherd eternal,
High in power, He reigneth upon the throne.

2. Pardon, pardon, Jesus has purchased our pardon;
Thro’ His death He gave to us hope and love.
Shepherd, lead us close by the waters eternal,
Coming down from fountains of grace above. [Refrain]

3. Praises, praises, sing to the Savior our praises!
Hallelujah, grace reaches even me;
Worthy, ever, He who hath brought us salvation,
Throned above, our King and our Lord to be. [Refrain]
