Should nothing of our efforts stand
No legacy survive
Unless the Lord does raise the house
In vain its builders strive

To you who boast tomorrow’s gain
Tell me what is your life
A mist that vanishes at dawn
All glory be to Christ!

All glory be to Christ our king!
All glory be to Christ!
His rule and reign will ever sing,
All glory be to Christ!

His will be done
His kingdom come
On earth as is above
Who is Himself our daily bread
Praise Him the Lord of love

Let living water satisfy
The thirsty without price
We’ll take a cup of kindness yet
All glory be to Christ!

All glory be to Christ our king!
All glory be to Christ!
His rule and reign will ever sing,
All glory be to Christ!

When on the day the great I Am
The faithful and the true
The Lamb who was for sinners slain
Is making all things new.

Behold our God shall live with us
And be our steadfast light
And we shall ere his people be
All glory be to Christ!

All glory be to Christ our king!
All glory be to Christ!
His rule and reign will ever sing,
All glory be to Christ!

    Thanks, J.T.! Happy new year in Christ.

  2. Benjamin P. Glaser says:

    Psalm 77:7-15
    Tune: Auld Lang Syne
    Forever will the Lord cast off, show favor never more?
    His steadfast love forever cease? His promise come no more?
    Has God forgotten all His grace? Has his compassion gone?
    Or can it be His mercies all, He has in wrath withdrawn?
    Then I replied, Such questions show my own infirmity.
    The firm right hand of Him Most High through years must changeless be.
    The LORD’s deeds I remember will, your works of old recall.
    I’ll ponder all which you have done and weigh your wonders all.
    O God most holy is your way; what god is like our God?
    O God of miracles, your strength, you have made known abroad.
    You have redeemed your people all, the power of your arm shown.
    Your people sons of Jacob are, and Joseph is your own.

  3. Joel Griffis says:

    I like this song, but I’ve always had a couple of nitpicks with it.

    First, I don’t understand the syntax of the first verse. How do the first two lines fit with the second two? The first two lines lead us to ask, “What then?” What if our efforts don’t stand and our legacy doesn’t survive? But then the second two lines don’t give the answer. It’s just a quote from Psalm 127:1. I understand the relevance of that verse to the subject, but syntactically the first clause is just left hanging.

    And then the line that says “And we shall ere his people be.” The word “ere” is an older term that means “before.” I’m pretty sure it should be “e’er”, the contractual form of “ever”, as in “We shall (for)ever be his people.”
