1 The Saviour died to set me free,
Glory, glory, to his name!
He died for sinners just like me,
Glory, glory, to his name!
His precious blood has made me whole,
His love has flooded my poor soul,
And his sweet Spirit holds control,
Glory, glory, to his name!

2 To just believe upon the Son,
Glory, glory, to his name!
He smiles, forgives, the deed is done,
Glory, glory, to his name!
The light breaks in and we rejoice,
And then ascends the anthem choice,
The sweet, new song, with heart and voice,
Glory, glory, to his name!

3 Come, brothers, friends, to him just now,
Glory, glory, to his name!
Come, all the world, before him bow,
Glory, glory, to his name!
Oh, come to the Saviour to behold,
Oh, come and feast within his fold,
While angels strike their harps of gold,
Glory, glory, to his name!

4 For you my Lord was crucified,
Glory, glory, to his name!
For you he bowed his head and died,
Glory, glory, to his name!
For you he rose–the King of light,
Oh, can you such a Saviour slight?
He waits to save, yes, save to-night,
Glory, glory, to his name!
