SDA HYMNAL 608 – Faith Is the Victory


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.

Faith is the victory!
Faith is the victory!
Oh, glorious victory
That overcomes the world.

His banner over us in love,
Our sword the Word of God;
We tread the road the saints above
With shouts of triumph trod.
By faith they, like whirlwind’s breath,
Swept on o’er ev’ry field;
The faith by which they conquered death
Is still our shining shield.

To him who overcomes the foe
White raiment shall be giv’n;
Before the angels he shall know
His name confessed in heav’n.
Then onward from the hills of light,
Our hearts with love aflame;
We’ll vanquish all the hosts of night,
In Jesus’ conq’ring name.


  1. Hymn 608 (Faith Is the Victory) in the book does not use the 2nd verse that you have published here. This verse is not an accurate refelection of SDA beliefs and does not appear in the hymnal – a different verse has been substituted. Many negative things have been said about the changes in the SDA hymnal and including this verse adds fuel to the fire. Please correct it. Thank you.
