Hymn/Song Information

O for an overcoming faith To cheer my dying hours




O for an overcoming faith
To cheer my dying hours;
To triumph o'er the monster Death,
And all his frightful powers!


Joyful with all the strength I have
My quivering lips should sing-
Where is thy boasted victory, Grave?
And where the monster's sting?


If sin be pardoned, I'm secure,
Death hath no sting beside;
The law gives sin its damning power;
But Christ, my ransom, died.


As sinners, we must droop and die,
But thanks to God be paid,
Through Christ we have the victory,
And are no more afraid.


---Alternative verses---


O for an overcoming faith
To cheer my dying hours;
To triumph o'er the fear of death,
And hell's malignant powers!


Those who true faith in Jesus have,
However weak may sing,
Where is thy victory, O grave?
And where, O death, thy string?


If sin be pardoned, we're secure,
Death hath no sting beside;
And of that pardon we are sure;
Since Jesus for us died.


Now to the God of victory
Immortal thanks be paid,
Who makes us conquerors while we die,
Through Christ, our living Head.
