Glory, O Glory!

Representative Text

1 I found in Christ a Savior,
To save me ev'ry day,
He fills me with His presence,
He leads me all the way.

Chorus:
O glory, O glory!
To Him my voice I'll raise;
O glory, O glory!
His name I'll ever praise.

2 He gives me sweetest comforts,
He ev'ry sorrow shares,
And while below I tarry,
My mansion He prepares. [Chorus]

3 He leads me forth to battle,
He is my shield and sword,
And to my trusting spirit,
Exceeding great reward. [Chorus]

4 He is my mighty Leader,
He is the great "I Am,"
I shall, in ev'ry conflict,
Be victor through the Lamb. [Chorus]
