1 We walk by faith, and not by sight,
no gracious words we hear
from 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;
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 are near,
and seek where you are found.
4 For you, O resurrected Lord,
are found in means divine:
beneath the water and the Word,
beneath the bread and wine.
5 Lord, when our life of faith is done,
in realms of clearer light
we may behold you as you are
with full and endless sight.
