His be the Victor’s Name is a hymn written by Samuel W. Gandy for the Plymouth Brethren’s Hymns for the Poor of the Flock in 1838.
His be the Victor’s Name
Who fought the fight alone;
Triumphant saints no honor claim;
Their conquest was His own.
By weakness and defeat
He won the reed and crown;
Trod all the foes beneath His feet
By being trodden down.
He hell in hell laid low;
Made sin, He sin o’erthrew;
Bowed to the grave, destroyed it so,
And death, by dying, slew.
What tho’ the’accuser roar
Of ills that I have done;
I know them well, and thousands more;
Jehovah findeth none.
Bless, bless the Conqu’ror slain,
Slain by divine decree!
Who lived, who died, who lives again,
For thee, my soul, for thee.
