William A. Ogden (1841–1897)


Glory, glo­ry, God is our hea­ven­ly Fa­ther;
Thro’ His love He gave us His on­ly Son,
To re­deem us, heirs of His glo­ry for­ev­er,
Heav’n and earth adore Him, the Ho­ly One.


Sing, O sing! Sing of the gra­cious Re­deem­er;
Sing, O sing! His mar­vel­ous pow­er make known.
Praise Him, praise Him, He is our Shep­herd eter­nal,
High in power, He reign­eth up­on the throne.

Pardon, par­don, Je­sus has pur­chased our par­don;
Thro’ His death He gave to us hope and love.
Shepherd, lead us close by the wa­ters eter­nal,
Coming down from foun­tains of grace above.


Praises, prais­es, sing to the Sav­ior our praises!
Hallelujah, grace reach­es even me;
Worthy, ev­er, He who hath brought us sal­va­tion,
Throned above, our king and our Lord to be.
