1. Give glory to Creation’s God, the Source of all that is. With but a word, He made the world, and thus the world is His. His greatness shouts from distant stars; His goodness shines as light; He made all things to bring Him joy, and in Him we delight! We cry, “Glory! Honor! Blessing to the King!” “Power Splendor!” all creation sings; We cry, “Wisdom! Riches! Thanks unto the Lamb!” Endless praises to the great “I AM!”
2. Give glory to Redemption’s Lamb, the Savior of the lost, Who wore our flesh, then bore our curse upon a cruel cross. He took the filth and guilt of sin; He took the wrath it earned; He reconciled our souls to God— the wayward have returned!
3. Give glory to the Coming King, the Lord of heav’n and earth! The fallen world, like fallen men, awaits its second birth. “Behold, I shall make all things new,” He promised groaning men. Dominion shall belong to Christ, and all be right again!
