Charles H. Gab­ri­el, in Make His Praise Glo­ri­ous, by Ed­win Ex­cell (Chi­ca­go, Il­li­nois: 1900) (🔊 pdf nwc). This song com­mem­o­rates an ex­pres­sion of Ed Card, su­per­in­tend­ent of the Sun­shine Res­cue Mis­sion in St. Lou­is, Mis­so­uri. An en­thu­si­as­tic man, he usu­al­ly end­ed his pray­ers with, And that will be glo­ry for me!

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 through 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 through the ages be glory for me.

Refrain

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

Refrain
