To God all Praise and Glory

Home » Original Songs » Updated Hymns


A general song of adoration, "To God all Praise and Glory" sets forth many wonderful truths of God's character. These include the fact that He is creator, the author of our salvation, His sovereign rule, His role as Shepherd, and His protection and care for us.


All praise to God Who reigns above,
The God of all creation,
The God of wonders, power and love,
The God of our salvation:
With healing balm my soul He fills,
The God Who every sorrow stills.

What God's almighty power has made
His gracious mercy keepeth;
By morning glow or evening shade
His watchful eye ne'er sleepeth;
Within the kingdom of His might,
His wisdom governs all things right.

The God Who is my Comforter,
The God Who is the Sovereign One,
The God Who is my Shepherd:
To God all praise and glory!

I cried to Him in time of need,
Lord God, O hear my calling!
For death He gave me life indeed
And kept my feet from falling.
For this my thanks shall endless be,
O thank Him, praise our God with me.

The Lord does not forsake His flock,
His chosen generation;
He is our refuge and our rock,
Our peace and our salvation.
As with a mother's tender hand,
He leads His own, His chosen band.

Then come before His presence now
And banish fear and sadness;
To your Redeemer pay your vow
And sing with joy and gladness:
Though great distress my soul befell,
The Lord, my God did all things well.

Words by Jacob Shutz (1640-90) and David Ward. Music by David L. Ward.

I happen to be a drummer and big fan of the hymn text to new music movement, just love Indelible Grace. I want to say how awesome this version is, it really gets me moving. I also love your version of It Is Well, not that the old version is bad but it's more pleasant for me to sing. Keep up the great work!
