Overcoming ev­il day by day,
This our war­fare on the Chris­tian way;
Yet un­to those that faith­ful en­dure,
God has de­clared that His pro­mise is sure.


They that ov­er­come, thus saith He,
They that ov­er­come, bless­èd shall be;
They that ov­er­come the world and sin,
Life and a crown in His kingd­om shall win.

Tho’ we suf­fer tri­bu­la­tion here,
Tho’ our crosses oft may seem se­vere,
Think of the joy when tri­als are past,
Strong in the Lord we shall con­quer at last.


Overcoming, O my soul, arise,
Overcoming, thou must reach the skies;
Still jour­ney on, and still ov­er­come,
Rest by and by with the Sav­ior at home.
