1 Corinthians 15:57
"But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory
through our Lord Jesus Christ."

          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.

          I heard about His healing,
          Of His cleansing pow'r 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 bro't
          To me 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.

          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
            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.
