The Hymnal 1982 209
We walk by faith, and not by sight

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. that, when our life of faith is done, in realms of clearer light we may behold you as you are, with full and endless sight.
