1828. Glory Be to Jesus' Name

1. Glory, glory be to Jesus,
Glory to His precious name;
Sweet it is to sound His praises,
Blest it is to spread His fame.

Refrain
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory be to Jesus’ name,
Sweet it is to sound His praises,
Blest it is to spread His fame.

2. In the place of His rejection,
Where He suffered, where He died,
Bursts of holy praise ascending,
Greet the glorious Crucified. [Refrain]

3. Here was marred His blessèd visage,
Here His brow was wreathed with thorn,
Here the object of derision,
Bitter taunt and mocking scorn. [Refrain]

4. Yes, triumphant hallelujahs
Still arise to greet His name;
Sweet it is to sound His praises,
Blest it is to spread His fame. [Refrain]
