Christ My Song - 667
O Christ, the same through changing years - Conquering and to conquer (Ray Palmer/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
Conquering and to conquer.
"That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow." (Philippians 2,10)
2. Her faithful sons, for love of thee,
have dared opposing powers to brave;
resolved from every bond to free
the soul that thou alone canst save.
3. Still for the honour of thy name,
O give thy servants strength to stand
unmoved by foe, reproach or shame,
a loving, trusting, dauntless band.
4. O gather to thy peaceful fold
the lost that on dark mountains stray;
let sinful souls that Cross behold
whose blood can take their guilt away.
5. Let triumph crown thy holy cause,
the last strongholds of darkness fall;
the nations learn and keep thy laws,
and own thee, Jesus, Lord of all!
