105: GLORY, glory everlastingby Thomas Kelly (1769-1854)
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
Who redeemed His people thus.
2 His is love, 'tis love unbounded,
Without measure, without end;
Human thought is here confounded;
'Tis too vast to comprehend:
Praise the Saviour,
Magnify the sinner's Friend.
3 While we tell the wondrous story
Of the Saviour's cross and shame,
Sing we, Everlasting glory
Be to God and to the Lamb.
Give ye glory to His name.
