1 Not unto us shall be the praise;
Keep us, dear Lord, in all our ways;
Savior, uphold us, else we fall,
Dwell Thou within us, all in all!
Not unto us the praise shall be,
Glory and honor, Lord, to Thee!
Glory and praise, we humbly sing,
Blessing and might to Christ, our King.
2 Not unto us shall be the praise;
Savior, make fruitful all our days;
Fill with Thy Spirit hour by hour,
Spreading abroad Thy saving power. [Refrain]
3 Not unto us shall be the praise;
When in the gloom bright songs we raise;
Thou art the Light, that, shining clear,
Breaks thro’ the clouds of grief and fear. [Refrain]
4 Not unto us shall be the praise;
When on Thy beauty, Lord, we gaze;
Swelling the rapture ‘round the throne,
Glory and honor Thine alone. [Refrain]Source: Gospel Herald in Song #187
