1. I heard an old, old story,

How a Saviour came from glory,

How He gave His life on Calvary

To save a wretch like me;

I heard about His groaning,

Of His precious blood’s atoning,

Then I repented of my sins

And won the victory.

O victory in Jesus, my Saviour, forever;

He sought me and bought me

With His redeeming blood;

He loved me ere I knew Him,

And all my love is due Him,

He plunged me to victory

Beneath the cleansing flood.

2. I heard about His healing,

Of His cleasing pow’r revealing;

How He made the lame to walk again

And cause the blind to see;

And then I cried, “dear Jesus

Come and heal my broken spirit,”

And somehow Jesus came and bro’t

To me the victory.

3. I heard about a mansion

He has built for me in glory,

And I heard about the streets of gold

Beyond the crystal sea;

About the angel singing

And the ole redemption story,

And some sweet day I’ll sing up there

The song of victory.

1. Admit that you are a sinner. "For all [humans] have sinned, and comes short of the glory of God....[and] the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 3:23)
2. Repent now. "Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out ...[for] if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness " (Acts 3:19, 1 John 1:9)
3. Believe that God loves you and Jesus died for you. "God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet Sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8)
4. Invite Jesus into your life through prayer of faith. Jesus says, "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me" (Revelation 3:20)
