Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

756. We Walk by Faith and Not by Sight

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 Word,
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.
