Old Hymns

Being at camp meeting we have been singing more of the good old hymns that remind you of church as a kid. We didn't sing this one, but it is my favorite. Leave a comment of the title of your favorite hymn.

I heard an old, old story, how the Saviour came from glory,
How He gave His life at Calvary, to save a wretch like me,
I heard about His groaning, of His precious blood's atoning,
Then I repented of my sins and won the victory.

Chorus:

Oh victory in Jesus, my Saviour 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.


THEN ON THE LAST VERSE, BROTHER CHARLIE WOULD GET UP & START WALKING THE AISLES..

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.
