Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Representative Text

1 Have you met sin’s mighty host in stern array?
Have you grown faint-hearted in the fearful fray?
Do the pow’rs of evil seem to gain the day?
Faith will win the vict’ry ev’ry time.

Faith will stand amid the wreck of time,
Faith unto eternal glories climb;
Only count the premise true
And the Lord will stand by you;
Faith will win the vict’ry ev’ry time.

2 All the ills that vex you Jesus’ blood can cure;
Be thou brave and hopeful, steadfast to endure;
For Jehovah’s promise standeth firm and sure.
Faith will win the vict’ry ev’ry time. [Refrain]

3 Ne’er give o’er the struggle; valiant be and true;
God is strong to conquer, and your foes subdue;
And the fi’ry furnace He will walk with you.
Faith will win the vict’ry ev’ry time. [Refrain]

4 O there’s naught but blessing Father waits to give,
And there’s naught but blessing we can e’er receive
If we fully trust Him and His word believe.
Faith will win the vict’ry ev’ry time. [Refrain]
