All glo­ry to God for con­vict­ion,
Which made me re­pent of my sins,
And see my ru­ined con­di­tion,
For ’tis here that all wis­dom begins.


All glo­ry to God for sal­va­tion,
From sin He set­teth me free;
Go tell it to ev­ery na­tion,
That Je­sus has saved ev­en me.

All glo­ry to God for con­ver­sion,
And the wit­ness He sent from above,
For the joy and peace He has giv­en,
And a heart that is filled with His love.


All glo­ry to God for the pro­mise
To cleanse all de­file­ment away,
And send us the gift of His Spir­it,
When all on the al­tar we lay.


All glo­ry to God! He is keep­ing
That which I’ve com­mit­ted to Him;
His blood o’er my soul is now flow­ing,
And Je­sus abid­eth with­in.
