Full Text

1 In the holy Christian warfare,
We the help of Christ may claim;
And through grace divine may conquer,
Overcoming in His name.

Overcoming in His name,
Overcoming in His name;
Praise the Lord! we shall be victors,
Overcoming in His Name.

2 Tho’ the foes we meet be many,
Surely we have naught to fear,
Trusting in the “Friend of sinners,”
Who is ever, ever near. [Refrain]

3 Let us never grow faint-hearted,
Or in weakness yield to strife;
But be loyal to our Leader,
And obtain the crown of life. [Refrain]

4 To each soul that overcometh,
Heaven’s fadeless palms belong;
When beyond all sounds of conflict,
Swells the victor’s glad new song. [Refrain]
