1 There’s a song within my heart, I am singing ev’ry day,
Since the Lord has wash’d all my sins away;
With His pow’r to overcome, for His glory I can say,
Praise the Lord for victory!

There is vict’ry ev’ry day, there is vict’ry all the way,
Let us shout and sing, Let His praises ring!
Since my sins are wash’d away, I’m rejoicing ev’ry day.
Praise the Lord for victory!

2 All the fear of sin and death, all the terrors of the grave,
Were forever lost when His life He gave;
For He rose again to life and is able now to save,
Praise the Lord for victory! [Refrain]

3 In the darkened shades of night, when the tempter shall assail,
I may fly to Him who will never fail;
He has promised if we trust, we may in His name prevail,
Praise the Lord for victory! [Refrain]

4 Yes, I know in whom I trust, and I know He will uphold,
For His love is true and His pow’r untold;
We shall reign with Him as Kings, when His glory shall unfold,
Praise the Lord for victory! [Refrain]
