Victory in Jesus

This is one of my husband’s favorite hymns and he uses it often at funeral services.  It was written by Eugene Bartlett, an author and composer, who was born in Missouri.  This was his last work, written in 1939, just two years before his death.  It became the most well loved of his songs and has been included in many hymnals.  I have a bit of a theological problem with it because at the end of the first verse it says “I” won the victory.  Of course, Lutherans believe we do not choose or win anything, that great work was done by our Savior.  However, the music and message is uplifting, and it certainly echoes our monthly theme, so enjoy!
