Went to a Pentecostal church and they were singing a song about giving him the glory and wondered what it meant?

It means praise.

Doing things for God's glory means doing things for His benefit, to call attention to Him.

thank you for the reply.  ::smile::
Does God need us to do things for his benefit? What does he need us to do?

No, He doesn't need us to, but He desires it.

God's word calls us to do everything for His glory. 

If we do that instead of our own glory, we bless Him, we remain humble, and we draw the lost to Him.

God made mankind to have relationship with us.  He delights in us and loves us so much, that when sin entered the world, He gave us His Son.  Its up to us what we do with that Truth.  If one decides to accept the free gift of salvation that Christ makes possible, we are compelled to praise God, because we understand just a little bit of what He has done for us and what our sinful state cost Him.

Its His will that none should perish, but leaves it up to each person what they will choose.  Of course, He wishes more and more and more would understand how much He loves them and that they would follow HIm! :)

He blesses us.

He makes promises to us and He keeps them.

When we read the word we come to understand Him more and more...as much as our finite human minds can any way. :)
