Victorious Vision

"The LORD shall rule over you" (Judges 8:23).  "O GOD the Lord, the strength of my salvation, Thou hast covered my head in the day of battle" (Psalm 140:7).  "The path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day" (Proverbs 4:18).  "And he [the dying thief] said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when Thou comest into Thy kingdom.  Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with Me in paradise" (Luke 23:42,43). 

The way to be victorious
Is by the sweet and full surrender
To Christ who gave Himself for us
To be our Ruler and Defender. 

Though we were once like driven cattle,
Unmindful of eternity,
The Lord rose up for us in battle
And gave His life to make us free. 

The light has shined with saving favor
To give us vision on our path
With strength received from Christ our Savior
Who has delivered us from wrath. 

Lord, thank You for victorious vision
You give, as when You heard those cries
The thief had raised, with true contrition,
And found himself in Paradise.
