We walk by faith

We walk by faith, and not by sight;
no gracious words we hear
of him who spoke as none ever spoke,
but we believe him near.

We may not touch his hands and side,
nor follow where he trod,
yet in his promise we rejoice,
and cry "My Lord and God!"

Help then, O Lord, our unbelief,
and may our faith abound
to call on you when you are near,
and seek where you are found:

that when our life of faith is done,
in realms of clearer light
we may behold you as you are
in full and endless sight.

(repeat vs. 1)
