Thine is the
glory, risen, conquring Son;
[or, Thine be the glory ]
Endless is the victory, Thou oer death hast won;
Angels in bright raiment rolled the stone away,
Kept the folded grave clothes where Thy body lay.
is the glory, risen conquring Son,
Endless is the victry, Thou oer death hast won.
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 conqurors, through Thy deathless love:
Bring us safe through Jordan to Thy home above.
