1 Jesus, my Lord, through thy triumph I claim
Victory for me, victory for me;
Lover of souls, by thy conquering name,
Victory for me, victory for me.
Canst thou not save a poor sinner like me?
Didst thou not suffer my soul to set free?
Thou didst provide by thy death on the tree
Victory for me, victory for me.

2 Here, Lord, I yield thee the whole of my heart,
Victory for me, victory for me;
From all that hinders at last I will part;
Victory for me, victory for me.
Called to thy service, I gladly obey,
Humbly my all at thy feet now I lay,
Trusting and fighting till life’s latest day;
Victory for me, victory for me.

3 Singing, I feel I shall conqueror be,
Victory for me, victory for me;
Boundless salvation is coming to me,
Victory for me, victory for me.
Cleansed by thy blood I shall walk in the light,
Held in thine arms I shall live in thy sight,
Filled with thy love I shall win in the fight;
Victory for me, victory for me.

4 Finished my work, I shall mount to the skies,
Victory for me, victory for me;
Comrades and kindred will shout as I rise,
Victory for me, victory for me.
Then saints and angels their welcomes will sing,
Then in his glory I’ll see my great King,
Then in loud rapture I’ll make Heaven ring;
Victory for me, victory for me.
