Glory to God, 'tis Jesus

Representative Text

1 Who can heal a troubled soul?
Glory to God, 'tis Jesus;
Who can make the sinner whole?
Glory to God, 'tis Jesus.

Glory to God, He saved my soul;
Glory to God, He makes me whole;
Glory to God, He'll save your soul,
Glory to God, 'tis Jesus.

2 Who has pow'r to cleanse from sin?
Glory to God, 'tis Jesus;
Who renews the heart within?
Glory to God, 'tis Jesus. [Chorus]

3 Who has pow'r the lost to save?
Glory to God, 'tis Jesus;
Who can ransom from the grave?
Glory to God, 'tis Jesus. [Chorus]

4 Who has grace for ev'ry hour?
Glory to God, 'tis Jesus;
Who can foil the tempter's pow'r?
Glory to God, 'tis Jesus. [Chorus]

5 Who can drive away all fear?
Glory to God, 'tis Jesus;
Who can bring relief and cheer?
Glory to God, 'tis Jesus. [Chorus]

6 Who can keep us all the way?
Glory to God, 'tis Jesus;
Bring us to the crowning day?
Glory to God, 'tis Jesus. [Chorus]
