Thine is the Glory


I love flipping through hymnals and finding hymns like this one I found this morning.  This hymn speaks about the victory of Christ over sin and death when He rose from the dead.  With words written by Edmond Louis Bundry (1884) and put to the music of Georg Friedrich Handel (1685-1759) this is the Hymn “Thine Is The Glory”.

Thine is the Glory

Verse 1:
Thine is the glory, Risen, conq’ring Son;
Endless is the vict’ry Thou o’er death hath won.
Angels in bright raiment rolled the stone away,
Kept the folded grave-clothes where Thy body lay.

Chorus:
Thine is the glory, Risen, conq’ring Son;
Endless is the vict’ry Thou o’er death hath won.

Verse 2:
Lo! Jesus meets us, Risen from the tomb;
Lovingly He greets us, scatters fear and gloom.
Let His church with gladness hymns of triumph sing,
For her Lord now liveth; Death hath lost its sting.

Chorus

Verse 3:
No more we doubt Thee, glorious Prince of life!
Life is naught without Thee; Aid us in our strife.
Make us more than conq’rors, Thro’ Thy deathless love:
Bring us safe thro’ Jordan to Thy home above.

Chorus
