Representative Text

1 Tho’ foes assail us on the field,
We will not to their power yield;
Thro’ God’s own grace to us revealed,
We’re on the vict’ry side.

Refrain:
I am on the vict’ry side,
Through the grace of Him who died;
I am on the vict’ry side,
For Jesus keep me there!

2 When testings come without, within,
Then, more than conqu’rors over sin,
We shall thro’ Christ, the battle win,
And find the vict’ry side. [Refrain]

3 Yes, more than conqu’rors we shall be,
The promise stands for you, for me;
From sin’s sad bondage to be free,
Oh, find the vict’ry side. [Refrain]

Showing early musical promise, William Marion Runyan (b. Marion, NY, 1870; d. Pittsburg, KS, 1957) was a substitute church organist by the age of twelve. He became a Methodist minister in 1891 and served several churches in Kansas but turned to evangelism in 1903; he worked for the Central Methodist Conference for the next twenty years. Following that service, Runyan became pastor at the Federated Church at John Brown University, Sulphur Springs, Arkansas.
