Lyrics

They who know the Savior shall in Him be strong,
Mighty in the conflict of the right ’gainst wrong.
This the blessèd promise given in God’s Word,
Doing wondrous exploits, they who know the Lord.

Refrain

Victory! victory! blessèd, blood-bought victory!
Victory! victory! vict’ry all the time!
As Jehovah liveth, strength divine He giveth
Unto those who know Him—vict’ry all the time!

In the midst of battle be thou not dismayed,
Tho’ the pow’rs of darkness ’gainst thee are arrayed.
God, thy Strength, is with thee, causing thee to stand,
Heaven’s allied armies wait at thy command.

Refrain

Brave to bear life’s testing, strong the foe to meet,
Walking like a hero midst the furnace heat,
Doing wondrous exploits with the Spirit’s sword,
Winning souls for Jesus, praise, O praise the Lord!
