To save the world the Savior came; It was for this in mercy

Representative Text

1 To save the world the Saviour came;
It was for this in mercy
He gave his life; the news proclaim
And give to Jesus glory.

Give to Jesus glory,
Give to Jesus glory,
Proclaim redemption’s wondrous plan
And give to Jesus glory.

2 What matchless grace, how rich, how free!
Our Saviour calls all to him;
A Saviour he to all would be;
O give to Jesus glory!

3 In every land where man is found,
Let us make known the story
Of love divine; its praises sound
And give to Jesus glory.

4 There pardon is for all who come
Their sins confessing truly;
Then pardon claim, O guilty one,
And give to Jesus glory.

Clark, William Henry. (Racine, Wisconsin, April 8, 1854--November 8, 1925, Rome, New York). Free Methodist. In his infancy, his parents returned to their former home in New York State, where his mother soon died, and his father married a close friend of hers, who forecast, after William's conversion in 1873, that one day he would be a bishop. He served the Susquehanna Conference of his denomination as a pastor and district superintendent from 1876 until 1919, when his stepmother's prediction came true. Meanwhile, he had been a member of the joint commission of the Free and Wesleyan Methodist Churches which compiled the Hymnal of 1910, and contributed some items to it. He died in office, requesting no eulogy at his funeral. --Arlene Clyde… Go to person page >
