1826. Glory Ever Be to Jesus

1. Glory ever be to Jesus,
God’s own well belovèd Son;
By His grace He hath redeemed us,
It is finished, all is done.

Saved by grace through faith in Jesus,
Saved by His own precious blood,
May we in His love abiding,
Follow on to know the Lord.

2. Oh the weary days of wand’ring,
Longing, hoping for the light;
These at last all lie behind us,
Jesus is our strength and might. [Refrain]

3. In His safe and holy keeping,
’Neath the shadow of His wing,
Gladly in His love confiding,
May our souls His praises sing. [Refrain]
