1 O what glory when He saved me by His grace,
When I saw the welcome smile upon his face;
Since he took my feet from out the miry clay,
O what glory I am finding ev’ry day!

Refrain:
O what glory when our Lord shall come!
Glory in his kingdom, safe at home;
O what glory, glory all the way!
I am finding glory ev’ry day!

2 O what glory as I triumph over sin,
As the precious blood of Jesus makes me clean;
As he comes to walk beside me in the way,
O what glory I am finding ev’ry day! [Refrain]

3 O what glory when the crowning days shall come,
When the saved of earth shall all be gathered home;
O what glory when all tears are wiped away,
O what glory shall be mine on that great day! [Refrain]
