I was doing some reading last evening and came upon this poem which I thought I would share with you:
AND NOT BY SIGHT
WE WALK BY FAITH
By Henry Alford (1845)
We walk by faith and not by sight;
No gracious words we hear
From Him who spoke as never man,
But we believe Him near.
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."
Help Thou, O Lord, our unbelief;
And may our faith abound,
To call on Thee when Thou art near,
And seek, where Thou art found:
That when our life of faith is done,
In realms of clearer light,
We may behold Thee as Thou art,
With full and endless sight.
