The United Methodist Hymnal


Victory in Jesus

     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.

        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.  

     2. I hear 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.

     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.
