|Text:||We Live by Faith and Not by Sight|
1 We live by faith and not by sight;
no gracious words we hear
From Christ who spoke as none e'er spoke,
who still we know is near.
2 We may not touch Christ's hands and side,
nor follow where Christ trod;
but in confessing we rejoice:
our Savior and our God!
3 Help then, O Christ, our unbelief;
and may our faith abound
To call on you when you are near
and seek where you are found:
4 That, when our life of faith is done,
in realms of clearer light
We may behold you as you are,
with full and endless sight.
