Take all the glory

920 25th P. M. 77, 87, 77, 87.
Joining the angelic hosts in praises.

JESUS, take all the glory:
   Thy meritorious passion
   The pardon bought, thy mercy brought
   To us the great salvatlon.
   Thee gladly we acknowledge
   Our only Lord and Saviour,
   Thy name confess, thy goodness bless,
   And triumph in thy favour.

2 With angels and archangels,
   We prostrate fall before thee;
   Again we raise our souls in praise,
   And thankfully adore thee.
   Honour, and power, and blessing,
   To thee be ever given,
   By all who know thy love below,
   And all the hosts of heaven.
                        Charles Wesley
