Glory | Sing the Story

Uncategorized

This is one my favorite hymns, but I don’t believe I’ve ever seen it with this Verse 2.

Old Air: “Away the Bowl”

Verse 1:
Oh, for a thousand tongues to sing
My great Redeemer’s praise;
The glories of my God and King,
The triumphs of His grace!
My gracious Master, and my God,
Assist me to proclaim,–
To spread thro’ all the earth abroad,
The honors of Thy name.

Verse 2:
Jesus! the name that charms my fears,
That bids our sorrow cease;
‘Tis music in the sinner’s ears;
‘Tis life, and health, and peace,
He speaks, and, list’ning to His voice,–
New life the dead receive;
The mournful, broken hearts rejoice;
The humble poor believe.

Wesley/Arr. by T.M.T.

Verse 1:
Shine on, O Star of beauty,
Thou Christ enthroned above,
Reflecting in Thy brightness
Our Father’s look of love.

Refrain:
Shine on, shine on,
Thou bright and beautiful Star, shine on!
Shine on, shine on,
Thou bright and beautiful Star, shine on!

Verse 2:
Shine on, O Star of glory!
We lift our eyes to Thee;
Beyond the clouds that gather,
Thy radiant light we see.

Verse 3:
Shine, O Star unchanging!
And guide our pilgrim way,
Until we see the dawning
Of heav’n’s eternal day.

Verse 4:
And when, with Thy redeemed ones,
We reach the heavenly shore,
May we with Thee in glory
Shine on forevermore.

Victoria Stewart/Ira D. Sankey
