Glory Hallelujah

Representative Text

1 To save the world the Saviour came;
It was for this in mercy
He gave his life; the news proclaim
And give to Jesus glory.

Refrain:
Give to Jesus glory,
Give to Jesus glory,
Proclaim redemption’s wondrous plan
And give to Jesus glory.

2 What matchless grace, how rich, how free!
Our Saviour calls all to him;
A Saviour he to all would be;
O give to Jesus glory!

3 In every land where man is found,
Let us make known the story
Of love divine; its praises sound
And give to Jesus glory.

4 There pardon is for all who come
Their sins confessing truly;
Then pardon claim, O guilty one,
And give to Jesus glory.
