S.M.


1
HIS be the Victor's name,
Who fought the fight alone;
Triumphant saints no honour claim,
His conquest was their own.
2
Through weakness and defeat
He won the meed and crown;
Trod all our foes beneath His feet,
In being trodden down.
3
He Satan's power laid low;
Made sin, sin's reign 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
In glorious majesty.

S.W. Gandy (d. 1851)
