Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

145. His Be the Victor's Name

1 His be the Victor’s name,
who fought the fight alone;
triumphant saints no honor claim;
His conquest was their own.

2 By weakness and defeat
He won a glorious crown,
trod all our foes beneath His feet
by being trodden down.

3 He Satan’s pow'r laid low;
made sin, He sin o’erthrew;
bowed to the grave, destroyed it so,
and death, by dying, slew.

4 Bless, bless the Conqu'ror slain,
slain in His victory;
who lived, who died, who lives again —
For thee, His church, for thee!
