All glory to the sovereign good

Full Text

1 All glory to the Sovereign Good
And Father of compassion,
To God, our Help and Sure Abode,
Whose gracious visitation
Renews His blessings every day
And takes our griefs and fears away.
Give to our God the glory.

2 In my distress I raised with faith
To God my supplication;
My Savior rescued me from death
And gave me consolation;
This makes me with both heart and voice
Before the God of grace rejoice.
Give to our God the glory.

3 Now then before His face appear
With praises and thanksgiving;
With awe His holy Name revere,
And join with all the living
To extol the wonders He hath wrought,
His mighty deeds, surpassing thought.
Give to our God the glory.

Jacobi, John Christian, a native of Germany, was born in 1670, and appointed Keeper of the Royal German Chapel, St. James's Palace, London, about 1708. He held that post for 42 years, and died Dec. 14, 1750. He was buried in the Church of St. Paul's, Covent Garden.

Author: Johann Jakob Schütz

Schütz, Johann Jakob, was born Sept. 7, 1640, at Frankfurt am Main. After studying at Tübingen (where he became a licentiate in civil and canon law), he began to practise as an advocate in Frankfurt, and in later years with the title of Rath. He seems to have been a man of considerable legal learning as well as of deep piety. He was an intimate friend of P. J. Spener; and it was, in great measure, at his suggestion, that Spener began his famous Collegia Pietatis. After Spener left Frankfurt, in 1686, Schütz came under the influence of J. W. Petersen; and carrying out Petersen's prin¬ciples to their logical conclusion, he became a Separatist, and ceased to attend the Lutheran services or to communicate. He died at Frankfurt, May 22, 1690… Go to person page >
