You Wear the Victor’s Crown

This past Sunday at church, the beautiful and talented Abby Hoenstine sang a song that blew my mind. I had never heard it before and it seemed like every word pierced my heart. I haven’t been able to get it out of my head since, so I thought I would share it with anyone who wasn’t there and, like me, might not have heard it before.

The name of the song is “Victor’s Crown” by Darlene Zschech. Amazing.

You are always fighting for us
Heaven’s angels all around
My delight is found in knowing
That You wear the Victor’s crown
You’re my help and my defender
You’re my Saviour and my friend
By Your grace I live and breathe
To worship You.

At the mention of Your greatness
In Your Name I will bow down
In Your presence fear is silent
For You wear the Victor’s crown
Let Your glory fill this temple
Let Your power overflow
By Your grace I live and breathe
To worship You.

Hallelujah
You have overcome, you have overcome
Hallelujah
Jesus You have overcome the world.

You are ever interceding
As the lost become the found
You can never be defeated
For You wear the Victor’s crown
You are Jesus the Messiah
You’re the Hope of all the world
By Your grace I live and breathe
To worship You.

Hallelujah
You have overcome, you have overcome
Hallelujah
Jesus You have overcome the world.

Every high thing must come down
Every stronghold shall be broken
You wear the Victor’s crown
You will overcome, you will overcome.

At the cross the work was finished
You were buried in the ground
But the grave could not contain You
For You wear the Victor’s crown.

Hallelujah
You have overcome, you have overcome
Hallelujah
Jesus You have overcome the world.

Every high thing must come down
Every stronghold shall be broken
You wear the Victor’s crown
You will overcome, you will overcome.

With Easter just a few days away, I am so thankful for the freedom to focus on the Cross of Christ and His glorious resurrection. Jesus’ death paid the penalty for our sins. His burial confirms the finality of the end of sin for all those who put their trust in Him. His resurrection is HOPE for life, freedom from sin and life everlasting. The Gospel. So pure. SO beautiful. I’m so grateful to God for rescuing me out of the domain of darkness and leading me into everlasting life. Don’t let Easter pass you by this year. Spend some time meditating and celebrating the cross and the redemption that we have received in Jesus. He is WORTHY.
