During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

1 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!

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

2 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]

3 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]

4 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! [Refrain]
