Blessing and Honor and Glory and Power Lyrics
1 Blessing and honor and glory and power,
wisdom and riches and strength evermore
give ye to him who our battle hath won,
whose are the kingdom, the crown, and the throne.
2 Soundeth the heaven of the heavens with his name;
ringeth the earth with his glory and fame;
ocean and mountain, stream, forest, and flower
echo his praises and tell of his power.
3 Ever ascendeth the song and the joy;
ever descendeth the love from on high;
blessing and honor and glory and praise-—
this is the theme of the hymns that we raise.
4 Give we the glory and praise to the Lamb;
take we the robe and the harp and the palm;
sing we the song of the Lamb that was slain,
dying in weakness, but rising to reign.
Blessing and Honor and Glory and Power Hymn Story
“Blessing and Honor and Glory and Power” is a Christian hymn that was composed by Horatius Bonar. It was first published in 1858.
This hymn is another praise song dedicated to the majesty of our Lord Jesus Christ.
He is the one who ultimately owns everything in this world.
Through his death he has “won” the right to be worshipped and praised by all humanity.
He died on the cross of calvary to save from the pit of hell. We had no hope for all have sinned and fall short of the kingdom of God.
It is only because Christ had to bear all our sins that he should suffer the punishment that was meant for us.
We could not save ourselves. It was simply impossible.
And as the apostle Paul says, if righteousness could be gained through the law, then Christ died for nothing.
