Representative Text

1 Each day a failure used to be,
The shadows always stayed with me;
But now, since Jesus set me free,
‘Tis victory all the time.

‘Tis victory all the time,
‘Tis victory all the time;
Yes, bless His name, since Jesus came,
‘Tis victory all the time.

2 When evil tempted me I fell,
In nothing did my soul excel;
But now I’m saved, and all is well,
‘Tis victory all the time. [Refrain]

3 No more the mighty foe I fear,
For my Defender lingers near;
And since His cheering voice I hear,
‘Tis victory all the time. [Refrain]

4 I’m pressing on without a sigh,
With Him, “to fairer works on high;”
And since on Jesus I rely,
‘Tis victory all the time. [Refrain]
