I See A Victory

Album: Hidden Figures (2016)
  • They'll call it a mystery
    But we're gonna call it victory
    We'll be writing history
    It's gon' be victory
    They'll be signs on top of signs
    Just so you know the history
    It's saying victory is with me

    Oh let them laugh about it
    Don't worry what the doubter's saying
    Yes it's an uphill battle
    But guess who else is playing
    The next time y'all in action
    And the Ghost is in the room
    Watch you work through the masses
    You know that we've been used

    Let go, let it be (let go, let it be)
    No matter how deep (no matter how deep)
    I swear just believe (I swear just believe)
    You'll find victory (find your victory)

    They'll call it a mystery
    But we're gonna call it victory
    We'll be writing history
    It's gon' be victory
    They'll be signs on top of signs
    Just so you know the history
    It's saying victory is with me

    So I tallied all my losses
    And I turned them into lessons
    And what seemed to be less
    I turned them into blessings
    See, I'm not trying to lose you
    But the Spirit is relentless
    And when you let go, let Him use you
    Then you can be a witness

    Let go, let it be (let go, let it be)
    No matter how deep (no matter how deep)
    I swear just believe (I swear just believe)
    You'll find victory (find your victory)

    They'll call it a mystery
    But we're gonna call it victory
    We'll be writing history
    It's gon' be victory
    They'll be signs on top of signs
    Just so you know the history
    It's saying victory is with me

    The Bible says you should pray for nothing
    'Cause every week it's gon' be something
    You know the devil can't wait to jump in
    And complicate the things you trust in
    But I know my foundation
    Is solid and can take some hating
    Prayer's gon' be on this space station
    On the way to the master's apron

    They'll call it a mystery
    But we're gonna call it victory
    We'll be writing history
    It's gon' be victory
    They'll be signs on top of signs
    Just so you know the history
    It's saying victory is with me
