1 I heard an old, old story, How a Savior came from glory,
2 I heard about His healing, Of His cleansing power re-vealing,
3 I heard about a mansion He has built for me in glory,
1 How He gave His life on Calva - ry To save a wretch like me;
2 How He made the lame to walk a-gain And caused the blind to see;
3 And I heard about the streets of gold Be -yond the crys-tal sea;
1 I heard about His groaning Of His precious blood's a-toning,
2 And then I cried "Dear Jesus, Come and heal my broken spirit,"
3 About the angels singing And the old redemption story,
1 Then I repent - ed of my sins and won the vic -to-ry.
2 And somehow Je - sus came and brought to me the vic -to-ry.
3 And some sweet day I'll sing up there the song of vic -to-ry.
O victory in Jesus my Savior, for-ever!
He sought me and bought me with His redeem-ing blood;
He loved me ere I knew Him, and all my love is due Him
He plunged me to victory beneath the cleans-ing flood.
