24: HIS be the Victor's nameby S. Whitlock Gandy (d. 1851)
1 HIS be the Victor's name
Who fought the fight alone;
Triumphant saints no honour claim,
His conquest was their own.
2 By weakness and defeat,
He won the meed and crown;
Trod all our foes beneath His feet
By being trodden down.
3 He Satan's power laid low;
Made sin, He sin o'erthrew;
Bowed to the grave, destroyed it so,
And death by dying slew.
4 Bless, bless the Conqueror slain,
Slain in His victory;
Who lived, who died, who lives again ---
For thee, His church, for thee!
