Latinised Hymns

To God be the glory! Great things he hath done!

To God be the glory! Great things he hath done!
So loved he the world that he gave us his Son;
Who yielded his life an atonement for sin,
And opened the life-gate that all may go in.
PRAISE THE LORD! PRAISE THE LORD! LET THE EARTH HEAR HIS VOICE!
PRAISE THE LORD! PRAISE THE LORD! LET THE PEOPLE REJOICE!
O COME TO THE FATHER, THROUGH JESUS THE SON!
AND GIVE HIM THE GLORY! GREAT THINGS HE HATH DONE!

O perfect redemption, the purchase of blood!
To every believer the promise of God;
The vilest offender who truly believes,
That moment from Jesus a pardon receives.

Great things he hath taught us, great things he hath done,
And great our rejoicing through Jesus the Son:
But purer, and higher, and greater will be
Our wonder, our rapture, when Jesus we see.

E. van Alstyne

Laudate Deum, quia magna facit,
qui Filium mundi amore dedit;
is omne luit moriens scelus, et
sic ianua vitae aperta patet.
CELEBRATE DEUM. TIBI, TERRA, SONUS
VENIAT, BIBAT AURE LIBENS POPULUS!
VIA FILIUS AD GENITOREM ERIT:
LAUDEMUS EUM QUIA MAGNA FACIT.

Nos sanguine soluit ille suo,
quis dat sua pignora, crede modo;
qui pessimus est, modo crediderit,
ei veniam simul ille dabit.

Nos magna docet, neque parva facit;
quae gaudia Filius ille dedit!
Quantoque maioribus laetitiis
videntium ipse videbitur is!
