What is it “to praise the glory of his grace”?

Charles Hodge answers:

‘The glory of grace’ is the divine excellence of that attribute manifested as an object of admiration.  The glory of God is the manifested excellence of God, and the glory of any one of his attributes is the manifestation of that attribute as an object of praise.  The design of redemption, therefore, is to exhibit the grace of God in such a conspicuous manner as to fill all hearts with wonder and all lips with praise.

Charles Hodge, Ephesians, Geneva Series of Commentaries, Banner, pg. 14-15.  Commenting on Ephesians 1.6.
