October 10, 2011 – Chorus from Judas Maccabeus Words

I discovered there is an Easter hymn to the music of Chorus from Judas Maccabeus. Thanks to Nancy for sharing with me:

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.

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

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 through Jordan to thy home above. Refrain

 


Words: Edmond Budry (1854-1932), 1884;
trans. Richard Hoyle (1875-1939), 1923;
