Victory in Jesus

I wanted to share this song with ya’ll today.  I remember growing up going to our Baptist church and my absolutely favorite song was Victory in Jesus. 
            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.
            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.
              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.
              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.

This song reminds me of my childhood church home, too! I can hear my dad's voice singing it.
