Faith Is the Victory Words: John H. Yates 1837-1900 Tune: Ira D. Sankey 1840-1908 Category: Faith and Trust A E E7 A 1. En-camped a-long the hills of light, Ye Christian sol-diers, rise, 2. His ban-ner o-ver us is love, Our sword the Word of God; 3. To him who o-ver-comes the foe White rai-ment shall be giv'n A E E7 A 1. And press the bat-tle ere the night Shall veil the glow-ing skies. 2. We tread the road the saints a-bove With shouts of tri-umph trod. 3. Be-fore the an-gels he shall know His name con-fessed in heav'n A E D A E A B E 1. A-gainst the foe in vales be-low, Let all our strength be hurled; 2. By faith they, like a whilr -wind's breath, Swept on o'er ev -'ry field; 3. Then on -ward from the hills of light, Our hearts with love a -flame; E7 A Cm Bm A E A 1. Faith is the vic -to -ry, we know, That o-ver-comes the world. 2. The faith by which they con -quered death Is still our shin-ing shield. 3. We'll van-quish all the hosts of night, In Je-sus' con-q'ring name. Chorus A E7 A Faith is the vic-to-ry! Faith is the vic-to-ry! D A D A E7 A O glo-ri-ous vic-to-ry That o-ver-comes the world.
