Representative Text

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!

Gandy, Samuel Whitelock. This writer (Vicar of Kingston-on-Thames with Richmond from Jan. 1817 to his death, Dec. 24, 1851) was the author of "What tho’ the Accuser roar" (Victory through Jesus), and "His be the Victor's name" (Victory through Jesus), in the Plymouth Brethren Hymns for the Poor of the Flock, 1838, Nos. 43, 44. Some of his Sermons were published posthumously in 1859. Sedgwick says he published a Selection of Psalms & Hymns, but we have not seen this work (S. MSS.). --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology, Appendix, Part II (1907)  Go to person page >
