Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

247. We Walk by Faith

1 We walk by faith, and not by sight;
No gracious words we hear
Of him who spoke as man 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 art near,
And seek where you art found:

4 That when our life of faith is done
In realms of clearer light
We may behold you as you are,
In full and endless sight.

5 We walk by faith, and not by sight;
No gracious words we hear
Of him who spoke as man e'er spoke;
But we believe him near.
