Oh Sweet Victory!

People standing on the mountain top

wondering what the scene was all about

there, three men's bodies, bloody and still

dead, for which there was no doubt.



Taken down from the middle cross

Jesus, taken to a heavily guarded tomb

the crucified body of the Savior, laying still

placed in what was to be, His final, covered room.



But praise God for the Power He held

Power, that Jesus had over Heaven, and hell

and when family coming to check on Him that day

His body gone, but now what a story, we can tell!



Up from the grave He arose!

to show He is the King of Kings!

Jesus broke free from the chains of hell

and now a Victory song we all can begin to sing:



We sing because He conquered death

We sing because the Savior died and rose again

We sing because Jesus broke open the tomb

Oh Yes, Sweet Victory because of Him!
