1 We walk by faith and not by sight;
No gracious words we hear
of him who spoke as none e'er spoke;
but we believe him near.
2 We may not touch his hands and side,
nor follow where he trod;
yet 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 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
in full and endless sight.
