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.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

He that overcometh

In this world of sin and sorrow There are burdens we must bear

Author: A. Byron Condo
Tune: [In this world of sin and sorrow]
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1. In this world of sin and sorrow
There are burdens we must bear,
There are conflicts and sore trials
That we here must daily share.

Unto him that overcometh
Is the precious promise given;
Unto him that overcometh,
There awaits a crown in heaven.

2 There's a tempter to be baffled,
There are wrongs to be made right;
There are stubborn hearts to conquer,
There are foes to put to flight.

3 There are lamps to be kept burning,
There are duties for each day;
There are souls that must be rescued
From their erring, sinful way.

4 There are feeble hands to steady,
There are fainting hearts to cheer;
There are warnings to be given,
There's a God that we must fear.
