To Him that Overcometh

"To him that overcometh
Will I grant to sit with me."
This prize above all others
Doth the Master offer thee.

How can I e’er attain it?
Have faith and hope and love,
Show forth my willing service
In labour for my Lord?

The foes of life surround me,
Discouragement comes in,
And Satan says in triumph
"Don’t think that YOU can win."

Then comes that blest assurance,
"Thou dost not walk alone,
Be but an overcomer
And thou shalt share my throne."
