He that overcometh, and keepeth My works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father.@Revelation 2:26-27

O Jesus, Son of God, in Thee
I trust for that last victory,
And kept by my eternal friend,
I keep Thy works, ’till life shall end,
Obedient unto death endure,
And find Thy richest promise sure.

So when Thou shalt on earth appear,
To fix Thy heavenly kingdom here,
I shall with my Redeemer join,
Partake the victory divine,
And clothed with Thy resistless power
The Conqueror of the world adore.

With Thee in full paternal might,
Vested, I shall go forth to fight,
Shall see the nations broke, subdued,
And scattered by Thine iron rod,
Swift as the shivered vessel flies
And share the triumph of the skies.
