    Glory to Thee;
    Thou Son of God most High.
    All praise to Thee!
    Glory to Thee,
    enthroned above the sky,
    Who died for me;
    High on Thy throne,
    Thine ear, Lord Jesus, bend
    As grateful hearts
    now to Thyself ascend.


    Deep were Thy sorrows, Lord,
    when heaven frowned—
    Gethsemane!
    Bloodlike Thy sweat, Lord,
    Falling to the ground
    So heavily;
    Dark was the night,
    but heaven was darker still,
    O Christ my God!—
    Is this the Father’s will?


    Thorns wreathed Thy brow
    when hanging on the tree,
    Man’s cruelty!
    Why lavish love like this,
    O Lord, on me?
    Thou lovest me!
    Would that my soul could
    understand its length,
    Its breadth, depth, height,
    and everlasting strength!


    Thy precious blood was
    freely shed for me
    On Calvary
    To save me from a lost eternity;
    Glory to Thee!
    Nor death, nor hell,
    nor things below—above
    Can sever me from Thy eternal love.


    Like shoreless seas,
    Thy love can know no bound;
    Thou lovest me!
    Deep, vast, immense,
    unfathomed, Lord—profound,
    Lord, I love Thee!
    And when above,
    my crown is at Thy feet,
    I’ll praise Thee still for
    Calvary’s mercy seat.
