All Glory Be to Christ

What better resolution for a New Year than to commit to what the Westminster Shorter Catechism calls, “The chief end of man”: To glorify God and enjoy him forever?

This song, set to the well-known New Year’s Eve tune of “Auld Lang Syne,” helps me to do just that. I hope it helps you.

All Glory Be to Christ
Songwriter(s): Dustin Kensrue

Lyrics:

Verse 1
Should nothing of our efforts stand
No legacy survive
Unless the Lord does raise this house
in vain its builders strive
To you who boast tomorrow’s gain
Tell me, what is your life?
A mist that vanishes at dawn,
All glory be to Christ

Chorus
All glory be to Christ, our King
All glory be to Christ
His rule and reign we’ll ever sing
All glory be to Christ

Verse 2
His will be done His kingdom come
On earth as is above
Who is Himself our daily bread
Praise Him the Lord of love
Let living water satisfy
the thirsty without price,
We’ll take a cup of kindness, yet
All glory be to Christ

Verse 3
When on the day the great I Am
The faithful and the true
The Lamb who was for sinners slain
is making all things new
Behold, our God shall live with us
And be our steadfast light
And we shall ere his people be
All glory be to Christ
