His be the Victor's name,
Who fought the fight alone!
Triumphant saints no honor claim-
His conquest was their own.
By weakness and defeat
He won the meed and crown;
Trod all our foes beneath His feet
By being trodden down.
Bless, bless the Conqueror slain-
Slain in His victory.
He lived; He died: he lives again,
For thee, His Church, for thee.
