Hymn/Song Information

Conquering kings their titles take




Conquering kings their titles take
From the foes they captive make;
Jesus, by a nobler deed,
From the thousands he hath freed.


Yes: none other Name is given
Unto mortals under heaven,
Which can make the dead arise,
And exalt them to the skies.


We would gladly for that Name
Bear the cross, endure the shame;
Joyfully for him to die
Is not death, but victory.


Jesus, who dost condescend
To be called the sinner's Friend,
Hear us, as to thee we pray,
Glorying in thy Name to-day.


---Alternative verses---


Conquering kings their titles take,
From the lands they captive make;
Jesus, Thine was given Thee
For a world Thou madest free.


Not another name is given
Power possessing under heaven,
Strong to call dead souls to rise
And exalt them to the skies.


That which Christ so hardly wrought,
That which He so dearly bought,
That salvation, mortals say,
Will ye madly cast away?


Rather gladly for that Name
Bear the cross, endure the shame;
Joyfully for Him to die
Is not death but victory.


Jesus, if Thou condescend
To be called the sinnerís Friend,
Ours the joy and glory be
Thus to make our boast of Thee.


Glory to the Father be,
Glory, virgin born, to Thee,
Glory to the Holy Ghost,
Ever from the heavenly host.
