Verse 1:
Thine be the glory, risen, conqu'ring Son;
endless is the vict'ry Thou o’er death hast won.
Angels in bright raiment rolled the stone away,
kept the folded grave-clothes where Thy body lay.

Chorus:
Thine be the glory, risen, conqu'ring Son;
endless is the vict'ry Thou o’er death hast won!

Verse 2:
Lo! Jesus meets us, risen from the tomb.
Lovingly He greets us, scatters fear and gloom;
let His church with gladness hymns of triumph sing,
for her Lord now liveth; death hath lost its sting.

Chorus:
Thine be the glory, risen, conqu'ring Son;
endless is the vict'ry Thou o’er death hast won!

Verse 3:
No more we doubt Thee, glorious Prince of life!!
Life is nought 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.

Chorus:
Thine be the glory, risen, conqu'ring Son;
endless is the vict'ry Thou o’er death hast won!
