"FAITH IS THE VICTORY"

Verse One:
Encamped along the hills of light,
Ye Christian soldiers, rise,
And press the battle 'ere the night
Shall veil the glowing skies.
Against the foe in vales below
Let all our strength be hurled;
Faith is the victory, we know,
That overcomes the world.

Chorus:
Faith is the victory, faith is the victory,
Oh, glorious victory that overcomes the world!
Faith is the victory, faith is the victory,
Oh, glorious victory that -overcomes the world!

Verse Two:
His banner over us is Love,
Our sword the Word of God;
We tread the road the saints Above
With shouts of triumph trod.
By faith they, like a whirlwind's breath,
Swept on o'er every field;
The faith by which they conquered death
Is still our shining shield.

[Repeat Chorus]

Verse Three:
To him that overcomes the foe,
White raiment shall be given;
Before the angels he shall know
His name confessed in Heaven.
Then onward from the hills of light,
Our hearts with love aflame,
We'll vanquish all the hosts of night,
In Jesus' conquering name.

[Repeat Chorus]

Oh, glorious victory that overcomes the world!
