Hymn/Song Information

GLORY FROM THE LORD ABOVE




Do I delight in sorrow‘s dress?
(Saith he who reigns above);
The hanging head and rueful look—
Will they attract my love?


Let such as feel oppression's load
Thy tender pity share;
And let the helpless, homeless poor
Be thy peculiar care.


Go, bid the hungry orphan be
With thine abundance blest;
Invite the wanderer to thy gate,
And spread the couch of rest.


Let him who pines with piercing cold
By thee be warmed and clad;
Be thine the blissful task to make
The downcast mourner glad.


Then, bright as morning, shall come forth
In peace and joy thy days;
And glory from the Lord above
Shall shine on all thy ways.
