Our Lamb Has Conquered

Our Lamb has conquered: let us follow him,
with eagerness of heart and strength of limb,
brave in endeavor, with your vision clear,
and high thanksgiving for God’s purpose here.
Our Lamb has conquered: let us follow him.

In loving service may our lives be spent,
in others’ gladness finding sweet content,
striving to show God’s fellowship to all.
To show God’s loving work—the servants’ call.
In loving service may our lives be spent.

Our Lamb has conquered: let us follow him,
from life’s fair dawning to its twilight dim,
fighting with selfishness and all its brood
, sin and disease, the enemies of good.
Our Lamb has conquered: let us follow him.

This hymn, #587 in the Moravian Book of Worship, is a response to the question of Jesus, “Who do you say that I am?” It was written by a British Moravian, Dorothy A. Connor, in 1941.

Thursday, September 20 — Psalm 108:1–5

God will redeem me from the realm of the dead; he will surely take me to himself. Psalm 49:15 (NIV)

Christ Jesus abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel. 2 Timothy 1:10

Christ the everlasting light, with great love and sacrifice you have freed us from the bonds of death. How can we ever thank you enough? Help us to live up to your sacrifice—to seek you in all that we do— to be your hands and feet in the world. Our Lamb has conquered! Let us follow Him. Amen.
