A life of overcoming


    • A life of overcoming, 
    • a life of ceaseless praise, 
    • be this thy blessed portion, 
    • throughout the coming days. 
    • The victory was purchased 
    • on Calv‟ry‟s cross for thee, 
    • sin shall not have dominion, 
    • the Son hath made thee free. 

    • And would‟st thou know the secret 
    • of constant victory? 
    • Let in the Overcomer, 
    • and He will conquer thee! 
    • Thy broken spirit, taken 
    • in sweet captivity, 
    • shall glory in His triumph 
    • and share His victory. 

    • Then from thy life ascending 
    • one triumph note of praise, 
    • (for they who always conquer 
    • a victor‟s song must raise,) 
    • shall echo on unceasing 
    • till Satan‟s host doth flee 
    • before our glorious watchword, 
    • “Lord, victory for me.” 

    • Though all the path before thee 
    • the host of darkness fill, 
    • look to thy Father‟s promise, 
    • and claim the victory still. 
    • Faith sees the heavenly legions, 
    • where doubt sees nought but foes, 
    • and through the very conflict 
    • her life the stronger grows. 

    • More stern will grow the conflict 
    • as nears our King‟s return, 
    • and they alone can face it 
    • who this great lesson learn: 
    • that from them God asks nothing 
    • but to unlatch the door 
    • admitting Him, who through them 
    • will conquer evermore. ......
