120. Thine be the glory, risen conquering Son

1 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.

Refrain:
Thine be the glory, risen, conquering Son,
Endless is the vict'ry thou o’er death hast won.

2 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: [Refrain]

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: [Refrain]
