Thine be the glory (Deg være ære)

Thine be the glory, risen conquering Son,
Endless is the victry 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 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.

####Chorus:

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 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.

####Chorus:

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