Death is swallowed up in victory.@1 Corinthians 15:54

Anna P. Hughes, 1909 (🔊 pdf nwc).

The Ms. of this song was sent to me [Henry Gilmour] by Mrs. Geo Hughes, mother of the author for publication, that it might be used. It was sung by Anna, Sep. 4th, 1909, in Thornly Chapel Ocean Grove, N. J., in the 6:30 Temple Service. Anna was testifying that same day, when the Death Angel touched her heart, and she was not, for God took her.

I’m walking with Jesus each day, yes I know;
He helps me to conquer in this world below;
Abiding, confiding, I’ll trust to the end;
Jesus is victor, on Him I’ll depend.

Refrain

There’s vict’ry for me! yes, vict’ry for me,
Thro’ Jesus my captain there’s victory;
No ill can betide, with Christ by my side,
For He’ll gain the vict’ry for me.

Tho’ fierce be the battle, and long be the fray;
The Savior has promised to lead all the way;
So following closely, I’ll shout as I go!
Victory! victory, o’er every foe.

Refrain

And when to the end of life’s conflict I’m near,
Death cannot affright me, no grave do I fear,
For Jesus hath conquered; once dead, now He lives!
Jesus my Savior the victory gives.
