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 sin
And won the victory.
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 His healing,
of His cleansing power revealing.
How He made the lame to walk again
And caused the blind to see;
And then I cried, "Dear Jesus,
Come and heal my broken spirit,"
And somehow Jesus came and brought
To me the victory.
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.
I felt these chord changes are more accurate to how I've heard this song performed at church.
