Hilariter, hilariter!

To him who rose that we might rise,

Alleuluia, alleluia!

3.  And all you living things make praise,

Hilariter, hilariter!

He guideth you on all your ways,

Alleluia, alleluia!

4.  To Father, Son, and Holy Ghost

Hilariter, hilariter!

Our God most high, our joy and boast,

Alleluia, alleluia!

1.  Come, Holy Spirit, Truth divine,

And witness bear that Christ is mine,

And that I trust no other name

To save my soul from sin and shame.

2.  Come, Holy Spirit, Light divine,

And let Thy light within me shine,

That from the way of God I may

Not even for a moment stray.

3.  Come, Holy Spirit, from above,

Imbue us with the Father’s love,

And lend to us Thy voice of grace

To comfort every tribe and race.

1.  O sing with exultation,

Sing to the Lord, rejoice!

And in His congregation

Shout with triumphant voice!

For, lo, at God’s right hand

Is Christ in glory seated,

With death and hell defeated,

As victor He doth stand.

2.  Since Christ, our Lord, is living

We nevermore shall die;

To God the glory giving

We rise to Him on high;

Though chastened we may be,

And to our graves be taken,

We unto life shall waken

And live eternally.

3.  Christ is the sure foundation

The builders did reject,

But He for our salvation

Is precious and elect,

And made the cornerstone,

On which the church is founded,

This marvel now is sounded

The work of God alone.

4.  To Thee, O Christ, be glory,

Who camest in His name,

Thy people sing the story

Thy praises to proclaim;

We thank Thee and adore,

O Christ, Our Lord and Savior,

Thy grace and boundless favor

Stand fast forevermore.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

1.  Abide with us, the day is waning,

Thus prayed the two while on the way;

We read that Thou, O Lord, remaining,

Didst all their doubts and fears allay.

Incline Thine ear, Thou King of grace,

When praying thus, we seek Thy face.

2.  At eventide, Thy Spirit sending,

Help us, O Lord, our watch to keep,

In prayer devout, before Thee bending,

Ere our eyelids in sleep,

Confessing sin in deed and word,

With hope of mercy from the Lord.

3.  Abide with us, with heav’nly gladness

Illumine, Lord, our darkest day;

And when we weep in pain and sadness

Be Thou our solace, strength and stay;

Tell of Thy woe, Thy vict’ry won,

When Thou didst pray:  God’s will be done.

4.  Abide with us, O Savior tender,

That bitter day when life shall end,

When to the grave we must surrender,

And fear and pain our hearts shall rend;

The shield of faith do Thou bestow,

When trembling we must meet the foe.

5.  When earthly help no more availeth,

To sup with us Thou wilt be night;

Thou givest strength that never faileth,

In Thee we grave and death defy:

While earth is fading from our sight,

Our eyes behold the realms of light.

1.  Come, risen Lord, and deign to be our guest;

Nay, let us be thy guests; the feast is thine.

Thyself at thine own board make manifest

In thine own sacrament of bread and wine.

2.  We meet, as in that Upper Room they met.

Thou at the table, blessing, yet dost stand.

“This is my body;” so thou givest yet;

Faith still receives the cup as from thy hand.

3.  One body we, one body who partake,

One Church united in communion blest,

One name we bear, one bread of life we break,

With all thy saints on earth and saints at rest.

4.  One with each other, Lord, for one in thee,

Who art one Savior and one living bread.

Then open thou our eyes, that we may see;

Be known to us in breaking of the bread.

As of old in Bethlehem,

Here as there your angels hail you,

Branch and flow’r of Jesse’s stem.

3.  Paschal Lamb, your off’ring finished

Once for all when you were slain,

In its fullness undiminished

Shall forevermore remain.

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

Cleansing souls from ev’ry stain;

Cleansing souls from ev’ry stain.

4.  Life imparting heav’nly manna,

Stricken rock with streaming side,

Heav’n and earth with loud hosanna

Worship you, the Lamb who died,

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

Ris’n, ascended, glorified!

Risn’n, ascended, glorifed!

1.  Come, thou Holy Spirit bright;

come with thy celestial light;

come, thou source of blessings sure;

come within our hearts to shine.

2.  Thou, of comforters the best,

thou, the sou’s most welcome guest,

of our peace thou art the sign.

In our labor, be our aid;

in our summer, cooling shade.

Every bitter tear refine.

3.  Brighter than the noonday sun,

fill our lives which Christ has won;

fill our hearts and make them thine.

Where thou art not, we have nought:

all our word and deed and thought

twisted from they true design.

4.  Bend the stubborn heart and will;

melt the frozen, warm the chill;

rule us by the judgment’s line.

Cleanse us with thy healing power;

what is barren bring to flower;

to thy love our sins consign.

5.  To thy people who adore

and confess thee evermore,

thy blest seven-fold gift assign.

Grant us thy salvation, Lord,

boundless mercy our reward,

joys which earth and heaven entwine.

Hymn Source = The Hymnbook (1955), a multi-denominational U.S. Presbyterian-Dutch Reformed hymnal

Words by the Rev. Edmond Budry (1854-1932), a Swiss Reformed pastor, in 1884; Translated into English by R. Birch Hoyle, 1923

The alternate name for the hymn is “Thine Be the Glory.”

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

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.

1.  Now the green blade rises from the buried grain,

wheat that in dark earth many days has lain;

love lives again, that with the dead has been;

Love is come again like wheat arising green.

2.  In the grave they laid the love by hatred slain,

thinking that Jesus would not wake again,

laid in the earth like grain that sleeps unseen;

Love is come again like wheat arising green.

3.  Christ came forth at Easter, like the risen grain,

who that for three days in the grave had lain;

raised from the dead, the risen Christ is seen;

Love is come again like wheat arising green.

4.  When our hearts are wintry, grieving, or in pain,

your touch can call us back to life again,

fields of our hearts that dead and bare have been;

Love is come again like wheat arising green.
