662. By Faith and Not By Sight

1 Following Jesus from day to day,
Gently He leads me along the way;
E’er will I trust Him all foes despite,
By faith and not by sight.

Refrain:
Walking with Jesus I’m in the light,
Walking with Jesus in robes of white;
Walking with Jesus my way is bright,
By faith and not by sight.

2 Jesus has purchased me for His own,
Sweetly He reigns in my heart, His throne,
Pardon He granted, and washed me white,
By faith and not by sight. [Refrain]

3 Seeking to enter the holiest place,
Boldly I came to the throne of grace;
Sanctified wholly, He’s my delight,
By faith and not by sight. [Refrain]

4 When I was held in affliction’s chain,
Suffering much from disease and pain;
Jesus then touched me and healed me quite,
By faith and not by sight. [Refrain]

5 Walking with Jesus till we shall meet,
When in His likeness I stand complete,
Where with the ransomed in heaven’s light,
My faith is lost in sight. [Refrain]
