Glory be to him who saved us
(Thomas Kelly/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Glory be to him who saved us.

"To him be glory." (Revelation 1,6)

1. Glory be to him who saved us,
  bore our sins, our sorrows took;
long a foreign lord enslaved us,
  long we wore his iron yoke;
      till one stronger
  by his power our fetters broke. PDF - Midi

2. His the undivided glory
  of a day so dearly won;
yours, ye saints, to tell the story,
  yours to make his glory known;
      tell with gladness,
  tell what God our Lord has done.

3. Angels thought he must abhor you,
  thought no way was left to save;
but he wrought deliverance for you,
  pitied, rescued, and forgave;
      Jesus saved you,
  loved the foe, redeemed the slave.

4. Hear it, O ye heavens, and wonder:
  be amazed, O earth, at this;
he, whose arm is clothed with thunder,
  stoops to save, and mortal is:
      Jesus suffers;
  shame, and death, and sorrow his.

5. Jesus for the guilty suffers,
  for his foes the Saviour dies;
and himself he freely offers;
  this is wondrous in our eyes:
      hence our safety,
  hence our hopes and joys arise.

6. Saviour, make us what we should be,
  full of grace, and full of love;
this, we trust, is what we would be,
  but we have no power to move:
      God our Saviour!
  raise our souls to things above.
