TO God be the glory, a Saviour is mine,
Whose power is almighty, whose grace is divine;
My heart he hath cleansed, he is dwelling within,
So wondrously saving from sinning and sin.

2 O wonder of wonders, to God be the praise,
I joy in his will, I delight in his ways!
And through every conflict, without and within,
He saves me and keeps me from sinning and sin.

3 No longer in bondage, my freedom I’ll use
My Master to serve in the way he shall choose;
To work or to witness, to go or remain,
His smile of approval my infinite gain.

4 Earth’s pleasures and treasures no longer allure,
My spirit aspires to the things which endure;
To walk with my Saviour in garments of white,
My highest ambition, my constant delight.

5 The world overcoming by limitless grace,
I worship the Lord in the light of his face;
So with him communing, like him I shall grow,
And life everlasting enjoy here below.
