Victory In Jesus

Eugene M. Bartlett, 1939

I heard an old, old story, how a Savior 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.

Chorus:

O victory in Jesus, my Savior 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.

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 angels singing and the old redemption story,
and some sweet day I’ll sing up there the song of victory. Chorus …………………………………………………………………………………

Love Lifted Me

James Rowe & Howard E. Smith

I was sinking deep in sin, Far from the peaceful shore, Very deeply stained with-in, Sinking to rise no more; But the Master of the sea heard my despairing cry, From the waters lifted me, Now safe am I.

Chorus:
Love lifted me! Love lifted me! When nothing else could help, Love lifted me.

All my heart to Him I give, Ever to Him I’ll cling,
In His blessed presence live, Ever His praises sing.
Love so mighty and so true merits my soul’s best songs; Faithful, loving service too, To Him belongs.
Chorus …………………………………………………………………………………

Sweet, Sweet Spirit

Doris Akers, 1962

There’s a sweet, sweet Spirit in this place,
and I know it’s the Spirit of the Lord;
There are sweet expressions on each face,
and I know they feel the presence of the Lord.
Sweet Holy Spirit, sweet heavenly Dove, stay right here with us,
filling us with your love; and for these blessings we lift our hearts in praise; without a doubt we’ll know that we have been revived when we shall leave this place.
