142: GLORY to God on high

by Thomas Kelly (1769-1854)

sung to Olivet midi score
by L. Mason (1792-1872)

1 GLORY to God on high,
Peace upon earth and joy,
Goodwill to man!
We who God's blessing prove,
His name all names above,
Sing now the Saviour's love,
Too vast to scan.

2 Mercy and truth unite,
Oh, 'tis a wondrous sight,
All sights above!
Jesus the curse sustains,
Guilt's bitter cup He drains,
Nothing for us remains,
Nothing but love.

3 Love that no tongue can teach,
Love that no thought can reach,
No love like His!
God is its blessed source,
Death ne'er can stop its course,
Nothing can stay its force,
Matchless it is.

4 Blest in this love we sing,
To God our praises bring,
All sins forgiven:
Jesus, our Lord, to Thee
Honour and majesty
Now and for ever be
Here, and in heaven.
