1.  Thine is the glory,

Risen, conquering Son;

Endless is the victory

Thou o’er death hast won.

Angels in bright raiment

Rolled the stone away,

Kept the folded graceclothes

Where Thy body lay.

Thine is the glory,

Risen, conquering Son;

Endless is the victory

Thou o’er death hast won.

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.

Thine is the glory,

Risen, conquering Son;

Endless is the victory

Thou o’er death hast won.

3.  No more we doubt Thee,

Glorious Prince of Life!

Life is nought without Thee;

Aid us in our strife;

Make us more than conquerors,

Through Thy deathless love;

Bring us safe through Jordan

To Thy home above.

Thine is the glory,

Risen, conquering Son;

Endless is the victory

Thou o’er death hast won.
