If you know where to get a bet­ter pho­to of Mor­ris,


They who know the Sav­ior shall in Him be strong,
Mighty in the con­flict of the right ’gainst wrong.
This the bless­èd pro­mise giv­en in God’s Word,
Doing won­drous ex­ploits, they who know the Lord.


Victory! vic­to­ry! bless­èd, blood-bought vic­to­ry!
Victory! vic­to­ry! vict’ry all the time!
As Je­ho­vah liv­eth, strength di­vine He giv­eth
Unto those who know Him—vic­t’ry all the time!

In the midst of bat­tle be thou not dis­mayed,
Tho’ the pow’rs of dark­ness ’gainst thee are ar­rayed.
God, thy strength, is with thee, caus­ing thee to stand,
Heaven’s al­lied ar­mies wait at thy com­mand.


Brave to bear life’s test­ing, strong the foe to meet,
Walking like a he­ro midst the fur­nace heat,
Doing won­drous ex­ploits with the Spir­it’s sword,
Winning souls for Je­sus, praise, O praise the Lord!
