JESUS, the conqueror, reigns,

By A Collection of Hymns

      1 JESUS, the conqueror, reigns,
      In glorious strength arrayed,
      His kingdom over all maintains,
      And bids the earth be glad.
      Ye sons of men, rejoice
      In Jesu's mighty love,
      Lift up your heart, lift up your voice
      To him who rules above.

      2 Extol his kingly power,
      Kiss the exalted Son,
      Who died, and lives, to die no more,
      High on his Father's throne;
      Our Advocate with God,
      He undertakes our cause,
      And spreads through all the earth abroad
      The victory of his cross.

      3 That bloody banner see,
      And in your Captain's sight,
      Fight the good fight of faith with me,
      My fellow-soldiers, fight!
      In mighty phalanx joined,
      To battle all proceed;
      Armed with the unconquerable mind
      Which was in Christ your Head.

      4 Urge on your rapid course,
      Ye blood-besprinkled bands;
      The heavenly kingdom suffers force,
      'Tis seized by violent hands;
      See there the starry crown
      That glitters through the skies!
      Satan, the world, and sin, tread down,
      And take the glorious prize.

      5 Through much distress and pain,
      Through many a conflict here,
      Through blood, ye must the entrance gain;
      Yet, O disdain to fear!
      Courage! your Captain cries,
      Who all your toil foreknew
      Toil ye shall have; yet all despise,
      I have o'ercome for you.

      6 The world cannot withstand
      Its ancient conqueror,
      The world must sink beneath the hand
      Which arms us for the war;
      This is the victory!
      Before our faith they fall;
      Jesus hath died for you and me;
      Believe, and conquer all!
