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, 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
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.
