Gandy: His be the Victor's name

Sunday, August 24, 2014
    Feast of Bartholomew the Apostle
    No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.
    —Romans 8:37 (NIV)
    His be the Victor’s name
    Who fought the fight alone;
    Triumphant saints no honour claim,
    His conquest was their own.

    By weakness and defeat,
    He won the meed and crown;
    Trod all our foes beneath His feet
    By being trodden down.

    He Satan’s power laid low;
    Made sin, He sin o’erthrew;
    Bowed to the grave, destroyed it so,
    And death by dying slew.

    Bless, bless the Conqueror slain,
    Slain in His victory;
    Who lived, who died, who lives again—
    For thee, His church, for thee!
    ... Samuel Whitelock Gandy (1780-1851) (see the book)
    See also Rom. 8:37; Gen. 3:15; 1 Cor. 15:55-57; 2 Cor. 2:14; 1 Pet. 3:18; 1 John 4:4; 5:3-4; Rev. 12:11
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You have prevailed over all our enemies.
