|Text:||Faith Is a Living Power from Heaven|
|Tune:||SING HEUT UND FREU DICH|
1 Faith is a living pow'r from heav'n
that grasps the promise God has giv'n,
a trust that can't be overthrown,
fixed heartily on Christ alone.
2 Faith finds in Christ our ev'ry need
to save or strengthen us indeed;
we now receive the grace sent down,
which makes us share his cross and crown.
3 Faith in the conscience works for peace,
and bids the mourner's weeping cease;
by faith the children's place we claim
and give all honor to one name.
4 We thank you, then, O God of heav'n,
that you to us this faith have giv'n
in Jesus Christ your Son, who is
our only fount and source of bliss.
