Thine Be the Glory


Words by Edmond L. Budry; Translated by Richard B. Hoyle
Music by G. F. Handel

This song...the recessional...is the culmination of everything we wanted to say: THINE, precious Savior, BE THE GLORY!!!

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 graveclothes
Where Thy body lay.

Thine be 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!

Thine be the glory,
Risen, conquering Son;
Endless is the victory
Thou o'er death hast won!

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 to Heaven,
To Thy Home above!

Thine be the glory,
Risen, conquering Son;
Endless is the victory
Thou o'er death hast won!

Back to Our Wedding Music!
