Palms of Victory

Traditional words and melody
(not written by Brother Jack)


I saw a blood washed traveler
In garments white as snow
While traveling through the highway
Where heavenly breezes blow

I saw him in the conflict
When all around was strife
And wicked men and devils
Convened to take his life

I saw him cast in prison
A dungeon dark as night
And yet I heard him shouting
This burden is so light

Palms of victory
Crowns of glory
Palms of victory
I shall bear

I saw him taken from prison
And chained unto the stake
And yet, I heard him shouting
It’s all for Jesus sake

Palms of victory
Crowns of glory
Palms of victory
I shall bear

I saw the flame when kindled
The blaze was burning bright
And yet I heard him shouting
The burden is so light

Palms of victory
Crowns of glory
Palms of victory
I shall bear

I saw his soul departing
It seemed the veil was rent
And I could see the angels
Which Jesus Christ had sent

They bore him to the Savior
The ever blessed one
The brightest star in glory
And Jesus said, well done

Palms of victory
Crowns of glory
Palms of victory
I shall bear
Palms of victory
Crowns of glory
Palms of victory
I shall bear
