Jewell, Kevin, Keith, and Kelly. I grew up with all of you at Faith Church in NN, and I could always count on a hug from Mr. Barnhouse as I called him back then. As we kids grew up and apart, we lost track of each other, but I kept up with what was going on with all of you through your mom and dad, and have continued to do so throughout all these years as Jewell would keep Daddy up to date with how Max was doing. I am so sorry for your loss and my loss, too. He was always there with a smile on his face and a hug to greet me at church. He was much loved and respected, and so much from me.
Love, Lisa Gross Housley

Thine Be the Glory

Words by Edmond Louis Budry
(30 Aug 1854 - 12 Nov 1932)

Music by George Frideric Handel, 1747
(23 Feb 1685 - 14 Apr 1759)

 

Thine be the glory, risen, conq’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.
Thine be the glory, risen conq’ring 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.
Thine be the glory, risen conq’ring Son,
Endless is the vict’ry, Thou o’er death hast won.

No more we doubt Thee, glorious Prince of life;
Life is naught without Thee; aid us in our strife;
Make us more than conq’rors, through Thy deathless love:
Bring us safe through Jordan to Thy home above.
Thine be the glory, risen conq’ring Son,
Endless is the vict’ry, Thou o’er death hast won.
