Christ My Song - 1179

Glory, glory everlasting
(Thomas Kelly/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Glory, glory everlasting.

"Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory." (Revelation 4,11)

1. Glory, glory everlasting
  be to him who bore the cross!
Who redeemed our souls, by tasting
  death, the death deserved by us;
        spread his glory,
        spread his glory,
  who redeemed his people thus.
        Spread his glory,
        spread his glory,
  who redeemed his people thus.

2. His is love, 'tis love unbounded,
  without measure, without end;
human thought is here confounded,
  'tis to vast to comprehend:
        praise the Saviour!
        Praise the Saviour!
  Magnify the sinner's friend.
        Praise the Saviour!
        Praise the Saviour!
  Magnify the sinner's friend.

3. While we hear the wondrous story
  of the Saviour's cross and shame,
sing we "Everlasting glory
  be to God and to the Lamb:"
        saints and angels,
        saints and angels,
  give ye glory to his name.
        Saints and angels,
        saints and angels,
  give ye glory to his name.
