I heard an old, old story, how the Savior came from Glory
How He gave His life at Calvary, to save a wretch like me
I heard about His groaning, of His precious love’s atoning
Then I repented of my sins, and won the victory.
Oh, 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 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.
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.
