1 My heart now has a song,
It sings the whole day long,
‘Tis victory, victory,
‘Tis victory thru Christ;
Since I’ve surrendered all,
My sins both great and small
‘Tis victory, victory,
‘Tis victory thru Christ.

Refrain:
Oh, ‘tis victory, ‘tis victory,
With Christ the great Sin Conqueror;
He knoweth no defeat,
His vict’ry is complete,
‘Tis victory thru Christ my great Deliverer.

2 For joy my heart now shouts,
No more I’m filled with doubts,
‘Tis victory, victory,
‘Tis victory thru Christ;
The King of glory wins
The vict’ry o’er my sins,
‘Tis victory, victory,
‘Tis victory thru Christ. [Refrain]

3 Oh, let the joyful sound
Sweep all the world around,
‘Tis victory, victory,
‘Tis victory thru Christ;
Let praises ever ring,
Let earth join in and sing,
‘Tis victory, victory,
‘Tis victory thru Christ. [Refrain]

4 How sweet is life to me
Since Jesus set me free,
‘Tis victory, victory,
‘Tis victory thru Christ;
‘Tis heaven here below,
His saving grace to know,
‘Tis victory, victory,
‘Tis victory thru Christ. [Refrain]
