Hymn #53: Glorious Is Your Name, O Jesus
Robert J. Fryson composed this setting in 1982 to accompany his own text. It is named GLORIOUS IS YOUR NAME for the opening phrase. Fryson performed the song on “The First Hymnal on a New Shelf” (a video produced prior to the hymnal’s publication) and died shortly thereafter.
Robert J. Fryson was director and founder of a sacred music group, the Voices Supreme. This male ensemble has released many albums. In addition, Fryson’s hymns have been recorded by James Cleveland, Aretha Franklin, Albertina Walker, and the National Youth Massed Choir.
