Victory In Jesus

E. M. Bartlett

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

Oh, Victory in Jesus, my Savior forever
He sought me and he 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 some how Jesus came and brought to me the Victory

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!
