Lyrics:

Traditional words

Thine be 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 grave clothes where thy body lay.

Chorus:
Thine be the glory, risen conquering 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.

No more we doubt thee, glorious Prince of life;
Life is naught 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.

Modern-English words

Thine is the glory, risen, conquering Son;
endless is the victory, you o'er death have won;
Angels in bright raiment rolled the stone away,
kept the folded grave clothes where Your body lay.

Chorus:
Thine be the glory, risen conquering Son,
Endless is the vict'ry, You o'er death have 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 has risen, death has lost its sting.

No more we doubt You, glorious Prince of life;
Life is naught without You; aid us in our strife;
Make us more than conquerors, through Your deathless love:
Bring us safe through Jordan to Your home above.
