1 I heard an old, old sto -ry, how a Sav-ior came from glo -ry,
2 I heard a-bout His heal-ing, of His cleans-ing pow'r re-veal-ing,
3 I heard a-bout a man- sion He has built for me in glo -ry,
G Em D G Am Em A Asus4 D7
1 How He gave His life on Cal -va -ry to save a wretch like me:
2 How He made the lame to walk a - gain and caused the blind to see;
3 And I heard a-bout the streets of gold be -yond the crys -tal sea;

1 I heard a-bout His groan-ing, of His pre-cious blood's a-ton-ing,
2 And then I cried, "Dear Je-sus, come and heal my bro-ken spir -it,"
3 A-bout the an-gels sing-ing, and the old re-demp-tion sto -ry,
G Em D G D Em G C G D G
1 Then I re-pent -ed of my sins and won the vic-to-ry.
2 And some-how Je -sus came and brought to me the vic-to-ry.
3 And some sweet day I'll sing up there the song of vic-to-ry.

O vic-to-ry in Je-sus, my Sav-ior for-ev-er
Em D G A Asus4 D7
He sought me and bought me with His re-deem-ing blood;
G C G G7 C G
He loved me ere I knew Him, and all my love is due Him,
G C G D G
He plunged me to vic-to-ry, be-neath the cleans-ing flood.
