Giving Him Glory

"Give unto the LORD the glory due unto His name; worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness… in His temple doth every one speak of His glory" (Psalm 29:2,9).  "Who hath ascended up into heaven, or descended?  Who hath gathered the wind in His fists?  Who hath bound the waters in a garment?  Who hath established all the ends of the earth?...  He is a Shield unto them that put their trust in Him" (Proverbs 30:4,5).   "For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost" (Matthew 18:11). 

We give to the Lord Jesus Christ
The glory that's due to His name:
Behold Him, the Lamb sacrificed,
Who bore all our sin and our shame! 

We speak of His glory foretold
In all of His temple portrayed.
His holiness there we behold
With mercy and judgment displayed. 

Behold Him ascended above,
Majestic as Lord of creation!  
Behold Him, our Shield of love,
Who died to procure our salvation! 

We love You, Lord, giving You glory,
As we have considered the cost,
Proclaiming the wonderful story
Of how You have ransomed the lost!
