I Want the Faith of God

Representative Text

1 I want the faith of God,
Great mountains to remove,
Full confidence in Jesus’ blood,
The faith that works by love.

2 The faith that will rejoice,
To saints by Jesus given,
That turns the key of Paradise
And saves from earth to Heaven.

3 I want the faith that wears,
That can Jehovah see,
That glad life’s heaviest burden bears,
That grips eternity.

4 The faith that cannot fail,
That makes salvation sure,
Anchored within the heavenly veil,
The faith that will endure.

5 I want the faith that fires,
And gives me heat and light,
That all my soul with zeal inspires,
That makes me love to fight.

6 The faith that saves from sin,
That will for victory strive,
That brings the power of God within
And keeps my soul alive.
