Thine Be the Glory, Risen, Conquering Son


HAPPY EASTER!  JESUS IS RISEN!  
To God the Father be the Glory, All things He has done! 

Hymn:
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.


Refrain:

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.

Refrain

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.

Refrain
