Thine be the Glory - George Frideric Handel

In 1884, Edmond Budry wrote new words for Handel's "See here the conqu'ring hero comes," which depicts the triumph of the Jewish warrior, Judas Maccabaeus, over enemies attempting to destroy the Jewish religion. 

Happy Easter! Have a wonderful day.

Hymn Lyrics
Thine be 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.

Refrain: Thine is the glory, risen conqu’ring 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 conqu’rors, through Thy deathless love:
Bring us safe through Jordan to Thy home above.
