A segun ati ajogun ni a je,
Nipa eje Kristi a ni isegun
B’Oluwa je tiwa, a ki yo subu
Ko s’ohun to le bori agbara re

Asegun ni wa, nipa eje Jesu
Baba fun wa ni ‘segun, nipa eje Jesu
Eni t’a pa f’elese
Sibe, O wa, O njoba
Awa ju asegun lo
Awa ju asegun lo

A nlo l’oruko Olorun Isreal
Lati segun ese at’aisododo
Kise fun wa, sugbon Tire ni iyin
Fun ‘gbala at’isegun ta f’eje ra

Eni t’O ba si segun li ao fi fun
Lati je manna to t’orun wa nihin
L’orun yo sig be imo ‘pe asegun
Yo wo ‘so funfun, yo si dade wura. Amin

Conquerors and overcomers now are we,
Thro’ the precious blood of Christ we've victory,
If the Lord be for us, we can never fail;
Nothing 'gainst his mighty pow'r can e'er prevail.

Conquerors are we, thro’ the blood, thro’ the blood;
God will give us victory, thro’ the blood, thro’ the blood,
Thro’ the Lamb for sinners slain,
Yet who lives and reigns again,
More than conquerors are we,
More than conquerors are we.

In the name of Israel's God we'll onward press,
Overcoming sin and all unrighteousness;
Not to us, but unto him the praise shall be,
For salvation and for blood-bought victory.

Unto him that overcometh shall be giv’n
Here to eat of hidden manna sent from heav'n;
Over yonder he the victor's palm shall bear,
And a robe of white, and golden crown shall wear.

Lelia (Mrs. C.H.) Morris (1862-1929) was born in Pennsville, Morgan County, Ohio. When her family moved to Malta on the Muskingum River she and her sister and mother had a millinery shop in McConnelsville. She and her husband Charles H. Morris were active in the Methodist Episcopal Church and at the camp meetings in Sebring and Mt. Vernon. She wrote hymns as she did her housework. Although she became blind at age 52 she continued to write hymns on a 28-foot long blackboard that her family had built for her. She is said to have written 1000 texts and many tunes including "Sweeter as the years go by."
