There's a motto for the children

Representative Text

1 There’s a motto for the children of the King,
By its words, the world they claim,
It is deep in every loyal Christian heart,
And the words are “In His Name.”

“In His Name” we will conquer every foe!
“In His Name” we will win where’er we go!
“In His Name” we defeat shall never know!
We must conquer “In His Name!”

2 It is written on the banners of the Lord,
And to all the words proclaim,
That more powerful than any earthly word
Is our motto, “In His Name.” [Refrain]

3 Then we’ll raise on high the standard of the Cross,
Through all ages still the same;
And we know that we shall never suffer loss,
For we’ll conquer, “In His Name.” [Refrain]
