Victory (Psalm 3 / Breast Cancer Song)

In commemoration of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, my song "Victory" is available to download for free. It's is a prayer for victory over breast cancer, based on Psalm 3. It was inspired by a pacifist woman who understood this psalm of war to be about her battle against cancer. Click here to download the song and/or here to donate to Susan G. Comen for the Cure. May we find a cure soon.

Here are the lyrics to "Victory":

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
