Hymn 181 - "Glory, Lord, is Thine for ever,"


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!



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 declared

All the fulness of God's love.



Yes, we see Thee 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!
