Lyrics

Can you now, my brother, say,
Victory, victory?
Christ who bore your sins away,
On the cross of Calvary,
Purchased for you on that day,
Victory, victory!

Refrain

Shout aloud! Victory!
Take new courage every day,
Trust in Jesus all the way,
Victory, victory!

Do you feel the tempter near?
Victory, victory!
Christ has won the victory;
He has set His people free;
Stand now in His liberty—
Victory, victory!

Refrain

You shall know this very hour
Victory, victory!
For when Christ has sway within,
You are victor o’er all sin,
And the fight you’re sure to win—
Victory, victory!

Refrain

Will you sing it all the way?
Victory, victory?
Then the tempter will take flight,
Then your pathway will be bright,
Then you’ll bring to others light—
Victory, victory!
