Why do we sing in church that sin and death have been defeated when people still die and sin is still rampant?

Sin and death are everywhere and making a mess of the world.  When Jesus comes, he will reign and create a new earth and heaven where sin and death are no more.  This hasn’t happened yet. So how can we state that sin and death have been defeated when we still suffer from them both?

1 Corinthians 15:55

ESV - 55 "O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?"
