Hymn/Song Information

Jesus is God the glorious bands Of holy




Jesus is God! the glorious bands
Of holy angels sing
Songs of adoring praise to him,
Their Maker and their King.


He was true God in Bethlehem's crib,
On Calvary's cross, true God;
He who, in heaven, eternal reigned,
In time, on earth abode.


Jesus is God! there never was
A time when he was not;
Boundless, eternal, merciful,
The Word the Sire begot.


Backward our thoughts through ages stretch,
Onward through endless bliss;
For there are two eternities,
And both alike are his.


Jesus is God! oh, could I now,
But compass land and sea,
To teach and tell this single truth,
How happy should I be!


Oh, had I but an angel's voice,
I would proclaim so loud,
Jesus, the Good, the Beautiful,
Is everlasting God.
