George F. Handel (1685–1759)


Thine is the glo­ry,
Risen, con­qu’ring 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 is the glo­ry,
Risen, con­quer­ing Son,
Endless is the vic­to­ry,
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.
