The burden of my fear and sin
On Christ by faith I roll;
And now I have His peace within
And victory in my soul.


There’s victory in my soul,
Victory in my soul;
I grasp the promises by faith,
There’s victory in my soul.

I know there is a test for me,
A battle to be won;
But God ensures the victory
Before it is begun.


On battlefields of long ago,
When saints have drawn the sword,
Their strength did not o’ercome the foe,
But trusting in the Lord.


While leaning on His arm alone
I cannot know defeat;
The glory shall be all His own
When victory is complete.


E’en death itself I do not fear
Since Christ hath borne its sting;
His presence through the valley drear
Will help us then to sing.
