O That Will Be Glory
Revelation 22:4
GLORY SONG  |  Hymn History  |  Bible Passage
Author: Charles H. Gabriel, 1856-1932
Musician: Charles H. Gabriel, 1856-1932

When all my labors and trials are o'er,
And I am safe on that beautiful shore,
Just to be near the dear Lord I adore,
Will thro' the ages be glory for me.

Refrain:
O that will be glory for me,
Glory for me, glory for me;
When by His grace I shall look on His face,
That will be glory, be glory for me.

When, by the gift of His infinite grace,
I am accorded in heaven a place,
Just to be there and to look on His face,
Will thro' the ages be glory for me.

Friends will be there I have loved long ago;
Joy like a river around me will flow;
Yet just a smile from my Saviour, I know,
Will thro' the ages be glory for me.



HYMN HISTORY:

It is often difficult to predict whether or not a new hymn will 'catch on' with the public. Actually, only a small number of those that are published ever reach a second edition. Of the 6500 hymns written by Charles Wesley during the 18th century, probably no more than 200 are sung anywhere today. Even so, this is a remarkable record of poetic longevity that is not equated by any other hymnwriter.

When "O That Will Be Glory" first appeared in 1900, a musical expert predicted, 'It will never go. It has too many quarter notes.' In other words, 'the rhythm is too monotonous.' But in a few years, it was the most popular hymn Homer Rodeheaver led in the Billy Sunday campaigns. It was affectionately called the "Glory Song "and was inspired, not by an experience, but by a personality!

The author, C.H. Gabriel, was perhaps the best known and most prolific gospel song writer of the early twentieth century. One of his good friends was Ed Card, superintendent of the Sunshine Rescue Mission of St. Louis, Missouri. Ed was a radiant believer who always seemed to be 'bubbling over' with Christian joy. During a sermon or a prayer he would often explode with 'Glory!' just as some people say 'Amen!' or 'Hallelujah!' His beaming smile earned him the nickname 'old glory face.' It was his custom to close his fervent prayers with a reference to heaven, usually ending with the phrase 'and that will be glory for me!'

When all my labours and trails are o'er
And I am safe on that beautiful shore,
Just to be near the dear Lord I adore
Will through the ages be glory for me.

O that will be glory for me,
Glory for me, glory for me,
When by His grace I shall look on His face,
That will be glory, be glory for me!

When by the gift of His infinite grace
I am accorded in heaven a place,
Just to be there, and to look on His face,
Will through the ages be glory for me.

Friends will be there I have loved long ago;
Joy, like a river, around me will flow;
Yet just a smile from my Saviour, I know,
Will through the ages be glory for me.
