~I will be glad and rejoice in thee: I will sing praise to thy name, O thou most High. Psalm:2
I often find myself humming a hymn at work, mostly in the mornings. When asked “what are you singing”, I simply respond “oh, you wouldn’t know”, but I think some know by now that I hum hymns.
The hymn for today was Faith is the Victory.
Encamped along the hills of light,Ye Christian soldiers, rise.And press the battle ere the nightShall veil the glowing skies.Against the foe in vales belowLet all our strength be hurled.Faith is the victory, we know,That overcomes the world.
Faith is the victory! Faith is the victory!O glorious victory, that overcomes the world.
His banner over us is love,Our sword the Word of God.We tread the road the saints aboveWith shouts of triumph trod.By faith, they like a whirlwind’s breath,Swept on o’er every field.The faith by which they conquered deathIs still our shining shield.
On every hand the foe we findDrawn up in dread array.Let tents of ease be left behind,And onward to the fray.Salvation’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 giv’n.Before the angels he shall knowHis name confessed in Heav’n.Then onward from the hill of light,Our hearts with love aflame,We’ll vanquish all the hosts of night,In Jesus’ conqu’ring Name.
I really love the lyrics, and it’s just a beautiful hymn to be sung, with such powerful truth.
~For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. 1 John 5:4
