Lyrics

I’m over in Canaan
Where riches abound,
Living on the victory side;
Each day going on to
Possess higher ground,
Living on the victory side.

Refrain

Sing glory, hallelujah!
I’m living on the victory side;
Since Christ my soul
Hath sanctified,
I’m living on the victory side.

No longer by fears
Am I fettered and bound,
Living on the victory side;
Sweet freedom in service
For Christ I have found,
Living on the victory side.

Refrain

I walk in the sunshine
Of God’s holy light,
Living on the victory side;
The will of my Lord is
My joy and delight,
Living on the victory side.

Refrain

The Lord, whom I trust,
Is my strength and my song,
Living on the victory side;
No foes can alarm,
Since to Him I belong,
Living on the victory side.
