"And all this assembly shall know that the LORD saveth not with sword and
spear:  for the battle is the LORD's, and he will give you into our hands."

          Once I drifted out in sin, had no hope nor joy within,
          And my soul was burdened down with pride, with sinful pride;
          Then my Savior came along and He showed me I was wrong,
          Now I know I'm on the winning side.

            Chorus
            Well, I am on the winning side, yes, I am on the winining side,
            Out in sin no more will I abide;
            I've enlisted in the fight for the cause of truth and right,
            Praise the Lord, I'm on the winning side!

          From the straight and narrow way I was drifting ev'ry day;
          Out upon the waters deep and wide, so deep and wide;
          But it all is over now, glory light is on my brow,
          And my soul is on the winning side.

            Chorus
            Well, I am on the winning side, yes, I am on the winining side,
            Out in sin no more will I abide;
            I've enlisted in the fight for the cause of truth and right,
            Praise the Lord, I'm on the winning side!

          I will never have a fear, for my Lord is ever near,
          And in Him so often I confide, in Him confide;
          He's the keeper of my soul since I gave Him full control,
          And He placed me on the winning side.

            Chorus
            Well, I am on the winning side, yes, I am on the winining side,
            Out in sin no more will I abide;
            I've enlisted in the fight for the cause of truth and right,
            Praise the Lord, I'm on the winning side!
