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.
