Thine Be the Glory, Risen, Conquering Son

To God the Father be the Glory, All things He has done! 

Thine Be the Glory, Risen, Conquering Son

This is one piece of music by Handel (aside from the lyrics of Budry) well-loved by Christians and sung on Sunday services. Next to Handel's Messiah, this is an all-time favourite hymn.

Words: Ed­mond L. Bu­dry, Richard B. Hoyle translated it from French to Eng­lish, 1923.

Music: Ju­das Mac­ca­bae­usGeorge F. Handel 
Thine is the glory, risen, conqu’ring Son;
Endless is the victory, Thou o’er death hast won;
Angels in bright raiment rolled the stone away,
Kept the folded grave clothes where Thy body lay.


Thine is the glory, risen conqu’ring Son,
Endless is the vict’ry, Thou o’er death hast won.

Lo! Jesus meets us, risen from the tomb;
Lovingly He greets us, scatters fear and gloom;
Let the church with gladness, hymns of triumph sing;
For her Lord now liveth, death hath lost its sting.


No more we doubt Thee, glorious Prince of life;
Life is naught without Thee; aid us in our strife;
Make us more than conqu’rors, through Thy deathless love:
Bring us safe through Jordan to Thy home above.
