8.7.8.7.8.7.8.7.


1
GLORY, Lord, is Thine for ever,
Ever blest - Thou art the Son!
Great the glory Thou art given,
And the glory Thou hast won;
Great the glory and the splendour
Of the holy heav'nly place;
Wonderful the Godhead glory
Shining Saviour, in Thy face!
2
Lord of glory, Thou didst enter
This dark world of sin and woe;
Great Thy glory that was witnessed
By Thine own while here below.
Thou didst die, and now we praise Thee
In Thy glory, Lord, above;
For in death Thou hast declarèd
All the fulness of God's love.
3
Yes, we see The crowned with glory,
Highest honour to Thee giv'n;
But Thy glory, all transcending,
Is the light that shines in heav'n.
Thou art greater, glorious Saviour,
Than the glory Thou hast won;
Thee - the great "I AM" - we worship,
Mighty God, Eternal One!
