Victory In Jesus
(D)I heard an old, old story, how the (G)Saviour came from (D)glory,
How He gave His life at Calvary, (E)to save a wretch like (A)me,
I heard about His groaning, of His (G)precious blood's (D)atoning,
Then I repented of my sins and (A)won the vic(D)tory.
(D)Oh victory in Jesus, my (G)Saviour for(D)ever!
He sought me and bought me with (E)His redeeming (A)blood.
He loved me ere I knew Him and (G)all my love is due (D)Him,
He plunged me to victory, (A)beneath the cleansing (D)flood.
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.
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.
