  1. The Victory

"The Victory" is an Easter song/Gospel acclamation. The doxology in Verse 4 is a subtle exposition of St. Augustine's teaching on the Trinity (Lover - our Father, Beloved - the Son, Love - your sweet Spirit) that bridges Easter into ordinary time on Trinity Sunday. I've never liked the fact that most contemporary Gospel acclamations avoid the lectionary’s Gospel antiphon, so the sheet music for "The Victory" features a Gospel tone to fill the gap.

Lyrics

Alleluia, alleluia
The victory is through Jesus
Alleluia, alleluia
The victory is through Jesus

Alleluia, alleluia
The victory is through Jesus
Alleluia, alleluia
The victory is through Jesus

1. Amidst the trials of our faith
And our longing for Him
We proclaim that Jesus
Has died for our sins
We are His body,
God’s children of choice
With the spirit within us
We sing with one voice.

Alleluia, alleluia
The victory is through Jesus
Alleluia, alleluia
The victory is through Jesus

2. The stone rejected
Has founded us all
And newly awakened
We answer the call
Tell all the nations
This word that you hear
Jesus is risen
That all may draw near

Alleluia, alleluia
The victory is through Jesus
Alleluia, alleluia
The victory is through Jesus
We cry victory
We cry victory
Alleluia

3. We cry victory. We cry victory
Halleluia, we cry victory.

4. Love, our Father
Beloved the Son
Love, your sweet spriti
The great three in one
All glory and honor
As always before
Be unto you now
And forever more

Alleluia, alleluia
The victory is through Jesus
Alleluia, alleluia
The victory is through Jesus

Alleluia, alleluia
The victory is through Jesus
Alleluia, alleluia
The victory is through Jesus
The victory is through Jesus
The victory is through Jesus
