I dare not be defeated

I dare not be defeated
With Calvary in view,
Where Jesus conquered Satan,
Where all His foes He slew;
Come, Lord, and give the vision
To nerve me for the fight,
Make me an overcomer
Clothed with Thy Spirit’s might.
  A victor, a victor!
Because of Calvary.
Make me an overcomer,
  A conqu’ror, a conqu’ror, Lord, in Thee.
I dare not be defeated
Since Christ, my conquering King
Has called me to the battle
Which He did surely win.
Come, Lord, and give me courage,
Thy conquering Spirit give,
Make me an overcomer,
In power within me live.
I dare not be defeated,
When Jesus leads me on
To press through hellish regions
To share with Him His Throne;
Come, Lord, and give Thy soldier
The power to wield the sword,
Make me an overcomer
Through Thine inerrant Word.
I dare not be defeated,
Just at the set of sun,
When Jesus waits to whisper,
“Well done, beloved, well done;”
Come, Lord, bend from the Glory,
On me Thy Spirit cast,
Make me an overcomer,
A victor to the last.

May the Lord bless the creator of this resource. There are many lyrics I would love to learn the tune. It will be great to have it sung so we can truly use in worship. God bless you all.

I wish that they could have this not just in instrumental form but with someone singing it. That would be appreciated. Otherwise, it is pretty good. God bless.

In this site I have found such inspiring hymns together with the accompaning music that have blessed not only my heart but those of the members of the Kingdom of God to whom I have sent it. I am at the present time introducing them to this site for consolation in the Christian journey that we have been called to take.

May God bless you every day in all that you do for Jesus --Amen!
