1 Faith is wisdom from on high,
Hearing ear and seeing eye;
In the soul a higher light
Than the ken of mortal sight:
Vivid trust in hope serene,
Evidence of things not seen.
2 Faith in meekness, as is meet,
Sits and learns at Jesus' feet;
Nestles closely to the Lord,
Happy in the Master's Word;
Cleaves to it, defends it then:
This to faith is Yea, Amen.
3 Faith is sure where sight is blind:
While lost sense may nowhere find
Hope, to stay a sinking soul
When the billows o'er it roll,
Faith directs its saving quest
To the cross, and there finds rest.
4 Faith, in childlike trust, is wise:
Trusting Him who never lies;
By whose grace the weak grow strong,
Change their sighing into song.
Praise be Thine, O Lord of might;
Faith shall end in glorious sight.
