Thine be the Glory

This hymn was originally the French "À toi la gloire O Ressuscité" written by Edmond Budry and published in 1884.  It was translated to English by Richard Birch Hoyle in 1923, and published in 1925 by the World Student Christian Federation.

With meter of 10 11 11 11 with refrain, it is almost universally set to the tune MACCABEUS - adapted from the oratorio by G F Handel (1685-1759).

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.

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.
