Victory in Jesus – Eugene Monroe Bartlett Sr.

Lyrics to Victory in Jesus by Eugene Monroe Bartlett Sr. 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, Then I repented of my sins; And won the victory.

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. Refrain I heard about a mansion He has built for me in glory. And I heard about

El Shaddai – Michael Card

Lyrics for El Shaddai by Michael Card El Shaddai, El Shaddai, El-Elyon na Adonia, Age to age You're still the same, By the power of the name. El Shaddai, El Shaddai, Erkamka na Adonai, We will praise and lift You high, El Shaddai. Through your love and through the ram, You saved the son of Abraham; Through the power of your hand, Turned the sea into dry land.

El Shaddai, El Shaddai, El-Elyon na Adonia, Age to age You're still the same, By the power of the name. El Shaddai, El Shaddai, Erkamka na Adonai, We will praise and lift You high, El Shaddai.

How Great Thou Art – Carl Boberg

O Lord my God, When I in awesome wonder, Consider all the worlds Thy Hands have made; I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder, Thy power throughout the universe displayed. Refrain: Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee, How great Thou art, How great Thou art. Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee, How great Thou art, How great Thou art! Refrain When through the woods, and forest glades I wander, And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees. When I look down, from lofty mountain grandeur And see the brook, and feel the gentle breeze. Refrain And when I think, that God, His Son not sparing; Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in; That on the Cross, my burden gladly bearing, He bled and died to take away my sin.
