Behold I stand at the door and knock...
5th Sunday of Easter

Fr Paul Chandler

The priesthood of Christ is the theme of this Sunday's podcast. I explore the common priesthood of all the baptised and the ordained ministry of the New Testament priesthood. I hope you find it beneficial.
The hymn comes from the Choir of Kings College, Cambridge, under the direction of Sir Stephen Cleobury. They sing the marvellous "Thine Be The Glory", the music of which was written by George Friederic Handel. It is available on the CD "Hymns from King's".
If you want to follow the hymn in its entirety at the end of the podcast, here are the words.

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