Most of Fanny's hymns are about Christ; however, this hymn praises God for His gift of Christ and for His creative works. Perhaps the most interesting aspect of this hymn is that it was popular in England for almost 50 years before "To God be the Glory" was featured by Cliff Barrows in the 1954 Billy Graham crusade. The pair learned the hymn two years prior at the British crusade. Until the crusade, the hymn was not really sung in the United States.
This Lord's day, Praise Hymn Fashions encourages you to give God glory and sing along with us. We discovered the following video produced by the Fountainview Academy in Lillooett, British Columbia playing and singing the hymn. Solo Deo gloria!
