Thine 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 grave clothes where thy body lay.
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

Have you ever noticed the line "No more we doubt thee"? I haven't.
It came to me in the shower. Weird that it's included, I mean so very often the idea of doubt isn't included in church songs and the fact it's included in such a well known song resonated with me.

Also, I just read my last post and realised it doesn't make any sense. It did at the time, doesn't any more. I had decided I was going to try a bit a clearer with my writing instead of constant self referencing and crypticness. Seems I have some way to go eh?

Hi, apologies for leaving this comment but I can't find any other way to contact you. I would really like to set up a blog called "mostlytesting" (as I'm a software tester), but you already have it. If you are not using it, would you be so kind as to remove it so I can use the name please?

I look forward to hearing from you.

Merry Christmas.
