Forgiveness of sins and victory over death is something we can rejoice in when we accept Christ into our hearts (1 Corinthians 15:55-57). But how often we forget this in our everyday lives. Read that again: We have victory because God has defeated sin and death!

“King of Victory” is a worship song of power and strength. The Watermark Music team wrote this song because they wanted a battle cry to declare the ultimate truth for all believers: Our God has defeated sin and death. So, as you read the lyrics to “King of Victory” below, focus on the Scripture references and prayers to set your hearts on the meaning behind the song we all love to loudly sing along to.


Sin where is your sting

Death where is your victory

Grave where is your power

You got no claim on me

You got no claim on me

  • Reflect on 1 Corinthians 15:55-57 and the fact that God gives us victory through Jesus Christ.
  • Confess if you’ve ever felt like the Lord isn’t powerful enough to conquer your sin or loving enough to forgive what you’ve done.
  • Pray for the Lord to show you the areas He has claimed victory in your life, and thank the Lord for providing victory through His Son.

Oh oh oh, my God is the Risen King

Oh oh oh, His name is Victory

Oh oh oh, He is alive in me

The Risen King of Victory is alive inside of me

  • Reflect on the story of David and Goliath in 1 Samuel 17, specifically 1 Samuel 17:45-47.
  • Confess times when struggle with control. Is there a battle in your life you need to surrender to the Lord?
  • Pray for the Lord to give you strength to surrender your hardships, fights, and battles to Him. Pray He will help you trust Him in all things.

Fear where is your grip

Curse where’s your authority

Hell where is your king

You got no claim on me

You got no claim on me

  • Reflect on the commandment God gives in Joshua 1:9, “Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
  • Confess where fear or anxiety creeps into your life and clouds your view of God’s power.
  • Pray for the Lord to protect you and to give you strength and courage to live in obedience to Him.

He lived

He bled

He died

He rose and is alive again

  • Reflect on the life, death, burial, and resurrection of Christ.
  • Confess the times you may take His suffering and sacrifice for granted.
  • Pray to have a heart of gratefulness and reverence for the sacrifice Christ made for all humans to be reconciled with God.

He lives

He loves

He saves

Now I am alive again

  • Reflect on the character of Jesus throughout the Bible and stories you know well.
  • Confess the times you assume His character is different than the truth of how He is described in the Bible (Psalm 136:1).
  • Pray for the Lord to remind you of the things He has saved you from and how He has made you alive. Pray to live and love in a way that reflects Christ’s love for you and others.
