Encamped along the hills of light,
Ye [tag]Christian[/tag] 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.
[tag]Faith[/tag] is the victory! Faith is the victory!
O glorious victory, that overcomes the world.
His banner over us is love,
Our sword the [tag]Word of God[/tag].
We tread the road the [tag]saints[/tag] 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.
On every hand the foe we find
Drawn up in dread array.
Let tents of ease be left behind,
And onward to the fray.
[tag]Salvation[/tag]’s helmet on each head,
With truth all girt about,
The earth shall tremble ‘neath our tread,
And echo with our shout.
To him that overcomes the foe,
White raiment shall be given.
Before the [tag]angels[/tag] he shall know
His name confessed in [tag]Heaven[/tag].
Then onward from the hill of light,
Our [tag]hearts[/tag] with [tag]love[/tag] aflame,
We’ll vanquish all the hosts of night,
In Jesus’ conquering Name.
