LYRICS: VICTORY IS MINE
(Dorothy Norwood)

Victory is mine,
victory is mine,
victory today is mine.

I told Satan to get thee behind,
victory today is mine.

Victory is mine,
victory is mine,
victory today is mine.

I told Satan to get thee behind,
victory today is mine.

Joy is mine,
joy is mine,
I know that joy is mine.

I told Satan to get thee behind,
I know that joy is mine.

Happiness is mine,
happiness is mine,
happiness today is mine.

I told Satan to get thee behind,
happiness today is mine.

When I rose this morning,
I didn't have no doubt,
I knew that the Lord would bring me out.
I fell on my knees,
said, "Lord help me please"
got up singing and shouting “Victory”.*

Victory is mine,
victory is mine,
victory today is mine.

I told Satan to get thee behind,
victory today is mine

Victory is mine,
victory is mine,
victory today is mine.

I told Satan
I told Satan
I told Satan
I told Satan
I told Satan
I told Satan
I told Satan
I told Satan
I told Satan
to get thee behind,
victory today is mine

*This is my correction of that transcript which gives that line as “got up singing and shouting the victory”
-snip-
This song is sometimes sung without the "When I Rose This Morning" verse.

for a pancocojams post of the song "This Morning When I Rose". Lyrics of that Gospel song include the lines "This morning when I rose/I didn't have no doubt." However, the remaining lyrics of that song are different from the "When I rose this morning" verse that is found in the song "Victory Is Mine".

Also, there are other African American Gospel songs with the title and/or lyrics "When I Rose This Morning". Click http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_yqHK7MLoec for a video of one such song that is performed by the Kansas City Gospel Wonders.
