The Lyrics

What good is dying condemned by your sins?
Join us eternally.
Jesus is victory, my friend,
His death our victory.

Give up the horror
The guilt and the shame.
Satan must set you free
Jesus is victory, my friend,
His death our victory.

Grave, you are stung.
Death, just defeat.
And all you worms
That Job could conjure;
Do your worst,
My Savior's stronger.

No use rejecting the Prophet of hope
His life receive for free.
Jesus is victory, my friend,
His death our victory!


[Melodic Free-Form: Reverently comical]
I introduce a good friend
Known as Jesus
I heard that He
Could heal of all diseases
I thought that this would mean
No diabetes.
A doctor who would
Cure whate'er I pleases.

But Jesus… well, He offers
Something better:
"You're dead from sin
No flu will make you deader.
Remember Hester Prynne who wore that letter."
[Spoken/Homiletic:] Hester is a fiction. Getting real People, all of us have sins.
God can live in the presence of your boo-boos great or small.
You need Jesus – no other name – to cure sin."

[Resume melodic free-form]
I thought about this on that very day.
And I remembered Philippians 1:21:

[Resume singing]
Living for Jesus, or dying to gain
None other can it be.
Jesus is victory, my friend,
His death our victory."

And as for me And as for me,
Redeemer, Savior, Lord who frees us.
As I live, I'm liv'n' for Jesus.

Start by devoting
Your life to my Lord
Time for a truce. Agree:

Jesus is victory, my friend,
V I C T O R Y
Let Him be your victory!
