The Conquering Savior

Representative Text

1 Come, sinners, to Jesus, no longer delay;
A free, full salvation is offered today;
Arise, all ye bond slaves, awake from your dream;
Believe, and the light and the glory shall stream.

For the Lion of Judah shall break every chain,
And give you the victory again and again.

2 The world will oppose you and Satan will rage,
To hinder your coming they both will engage;
But Jesus, your Saviour, hath conquered for you
And he will assist you to conquer them too.

3 Though rough be the fighting and troubles arise,
There are mansions of glory prepared in the skies;
A crown and a kingdom you shortly shall view,
The laurels of victory are waiting for you.
