By faith we see the hand of God

By faith we see the hand of God
in the light of creation’s grand design;
in the lives of those who prove his faithfulness,
who walk by faith and not by sight.

2. By faith our fathers roamed the earth
with the power of his promise in their hearts:
of a holy city built by God’s own hand—
a place where peace and justice reign.

We will stand as children of the promise,
we will fix our eyes on him: our soul’s reward.
Till the race is finished and the work is done,
we’ll walk by faith and not by sight.

3. By faith the prophets saw a day
when the longed-for Messiah would appear
with the power to break the chains of sin and death
and rise triumphant from the grave.

4. By faith, the church was called to go
in the power of the spirit to the lost:
to deliver captives and to preach good news
in every corner of the earth.

We will stand as children of the promise…

5. By faith, this mountain shall be moved
and the power of the gospel shall prevail,
for we know in Christ all things are possible
for all who call upon his name.

We will stand as children of the promise,
we will fix our eyes on him: our soul’s reward.
Till the race is finished and the work is done,
we’ll walk by faith and not by sight,
we’ll walk by faith and not by sight.
