1 We walk by faith and not by sight,
No gracious words we hear
From Him who spoke as none e’er spoke,
But we believe Him near.
2 We may not touch His hands and side,
Nor follow where He trod;
But in His promise we rejoice
And cry, “My Lord and God!”
3 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.
4 For You, O resurrected Lord,
Are found in means divine:
Beneath the water and the Wrod,
Beneath the bread and wine.
5 Lord, when our life of faith is done,
In realms of clearer light
We may behold You as You are
With full and endless sight.
