Hymn Story: Thine is the Glory
Thine is the Glory is often performed as an Easter song.
The hymn was written by Edmond Budry, a Swiss Protestant minister.
The lyrics are set to the tune “See, the Conqu’ring hero comes” from the third section of Handel’s oratorio Judas Maccabaeus. The German Advent hymn Tochter Zion, freue dich uses the same tune.
The hymn is also sometimes performed at weddings or funerals.
