“But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” – 1 Corinthians 15:57

Victory in Jesus

Verse 1:
I heard an old, old story,
how a Savior came from glory,
How He gave His life on Calvary to save a wretch like me.
I heard about His groaning,
of His precious blood’s atoning,
Then I repented of my sins and won the victory.

Chorus:
O victory in Jesus, my Savior forever!
He sought me and bought me with His redeeming blood;
He loved me ere I knew Him, and all my love is due Him.
He plunged me to victory beneath the cleansing flood.

Verse 2:
I heard about His healing,
of His cleansing power revealing,
How He made the lame to walk again and caused the blind to see.
And then I cried, “Dear Jesus,
come and heal my broken spirit,”
And somehow Jesus came and brought to me the victory.

Chorus

Verse 3:
I heard about a mansion
He has built for me in glory,
And I heard about the streets of gold beyond the crystal sea;
About the angels singing,
and the old redemption story,
And some sweet day I’ll sing up there the song of victory.

Chorus
