Song of Hope for Overcoming Breast Cancer

A few days ago we posted a poem based on Psalm 3 to commemorate the movement and research to overcome breast cancer. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so we revisited this psalm once again and this time turned it into a song. The lyrics and video are posted below.

Victory (Psalm 3)

Facing before us our enemy
Frightened we go to war, fearing defeat
It rises against us so strong
Tries to break us down, make us weak
Says to us, “All hope is gone.”

But God, Your shield surrounds us
And You are the fortress within us
When we cry out in agony, pain, and fear
From the sacred earth
And within each person
You reply, “I am here.”

So we march, march on like soldiers
Victory’s ours to be won
Holy and healing God strengthens us
Rest we’ll find
And peace of mind, knowing
We’ll wake with the sun

Rise up within and around us
We call out “Deliver us, God!”
Help women strike down this enemy
Like those before
We’ll win once more, lead us
To victory

Healing and strength, God,
We ask for your blessing
Lead us like Esther to victory
You are our hope and in
You we take comfort
Grant us the will and
the courage we need

Then we’ll sing, sing out like songbirds
Knowing in You we have hope
Only from God does our strength come
We sing Your praise
Our voices raise, knowing
This battle’s won

So we’ll march, march on like soldiers
Victory’s ours to be won
Holy and healing God strengthens us
Rest we’ll find
And peace of mind, knowing
We’ll wake with the sun

  1. Great tunes! Thanks for bringing the magic. I'm chuckle because we just created a blogspot page a couple weeks ago with the same background, because we call it "dust of the saints" (dots). Our blogspot is a song/poem/story collaboration page. Do check it out: www.dustofthesaints.blogspot.com
    Much peace.
