God Sent His Son – Lyrics

Meter: 87 87 88 87

God sent His Son for all mankind,
Sing glory, alleluia!
To save the lost, the lame and blind;
Sing glory, alleluia!
To reconcile them through His birth,
to rescue all the sons of earth.
We praise the everlasting Word,
Sing glory, alleluia!

Peace and forgiveness is our plea;
Sing glory, alleluia!
From sin’s cruel grip He sets us free;
Sing glory, alleluia!
We worship Jesus Christ the Son,
Who lived before the world began.
We praise the everlasting Word,
Sing glory, alleluia!

He is the great eternal flame;
Sing glory, alleluia!
He bears the precious Saviour’s name;
Sing glory, alleluia!
Salvation comes through trust in Him,
His Light will never ever dim.
We praise the everlasting Word,
Sing glory, alleluia!

Once we were lost, but now are found;
Sing glory, alleluia!
In joy we stand on hallowed ground;
Sing glory, alleluia!
He is the everlasting King,
He is the Lord of everything;
We praise the everlasting Word,
Sing glory, alleluia!

He is the Truth, the Life, the Way;
Sing glory, alleluia!
Sing out your praise to Him each day;
Sing glory, alleluia!
To Heav’n our hands and arms we raise
to God in love and joy and praise.
We praise the everlasting Word,
Sing glory, alleluia!

History

“Sing Glory Alleluia” is based on the melody used in the traditional German Christmas Carol “O Tannenbaum” which means “O fir tree”. The carol is less commonly sung in English where it is more normally known as “O Christmas Tree”). The melody is an older folk tune which was written down in the 16th century. It is also known as the tune of “Es lebe hoch der Zimmermannsgeselle” and of “Lauriger Horatius”. The tune has been adapted and arranged here for Piano, Flute and Cello by Richard Irwin.

The idea of the Christmas Tree was brought to England by Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha (1819-1861) who was married to and became Prince Consort to Queen Victoria of Great Britain (1819-1901).
