To God Be The Glory (with lyrics)

Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ,

Who gave Himself for our sins, that He might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father:

To whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

Galatians 1:3-5

Lyrics

To God be the glory, great things He hath done,
So loved He the world that He gave us His Son,
Who yielded His life an atonement for sin,
And opened the life gate that all may go in.

Oh, perfect redemption, the purchase of blood,
To every believer the promise of God;
The vilest offender who truly believes,
That moment from Jesus a pardon receives.

Great things He hath taught us, great things He hath done,
And great our rejoicing through Jesus the Son;
But purer, and higher, and greater will be
Our wonder, our transport, when Jesus we see.

Fanny J. Crosby

      1. Thank you! Normally I don’t like Bitmoji for my own personal use, but I was thinking the other day about how no one here knows what I look like (or I should say what Greg looks like, since I present this blog as a work of fiction, even though it is based on true stories). I don’t have any pictures of myself on here, in order to protect people’s identities.
        There was the time I posted some pictures from later in life of me with Taylor when I was talking about how we’re still friends, and I blurred the faces in those pictures. So I was just playing around with Bitmoji the other day, and I made that; it’s based on what I look like now except without glasses, since in 1996 I pretty much looked the same as I do now but I didn’t need glasses yet at the time. I added the lettering on the shirt myself, obviously, since Jeromeville is not real (well, it is, but it’s not called Jeromeville in real life).

        Also, a few months later from where I am in the story right now, I started taking pictures more often, so I will have more pictures as the story goes on. I was planning on blurring the faces out, but now I’m thinking maybe I could make bitmoji for each of the main characters and just cut and paste those over the faces in the picture. We’ll see.
