The accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb.@Revelation 12:10-11

Helpless I come to Jesus’ blood,
And all myself resign;
I lose my weakness in that flood,
And gather strength divine.

Refrain

My soul will overcome by the blood of the Lamb,
My soul will overcome by the blood of the Lamb;
Overcome, overcome,
Overcome by the blood of the Lamb.

’Tis Jesus gives me life within,
And nerves me for the fray;
He spoiled the hosts of death and sin,
And took their pow’r away.

Refrain

Tho’ clouds of conflict hide my view,
And foes are fierce and strong,
In Jesus’ name I’ll struggle thro’,
And enter Heav’n with song.
