Faith, Mission, Perseverance, Promised Messiah, The Victory of Christ, Trust



Verse 1
By faith we see the hand of God
In the light of creation’s grand design
In the lives of those who prove his faithfulness
Who walk by faith and not by sight

Verse 2
By faith our fathers roamed the earth
With the pow’r of his promise in their hearts
Of a holy city built by God’s own hand
A place where peace and justice reign

We will stand as children of the promise
We will fix our eyes on him, our soul’s reward
Till the race is finished and the work is done
We’ll walk by faith and not by sight

Verse 3
By faith the prophets saw a day
When the longed-for Messiah would appear
With the pow’r to break the chains of sin and death
And rise triumphant from the grave

Verse 4
By faith the church was called to go
In the pow’r of the Spirit to the lost
To deliver captives and to preach good news
In ev’ry corner of the earth

Verse 5
By faith the mountain shall be moved
And the pow’r of the gospel shall prevail
For we know in Christ all things are possible
For all who call upon his name

  Sample Introduction

The Faith Hall of Fame in Hebrews 11 reminds us of God’s people in the Old Testament that trusted in God and his promises, and reminds us that God remained faithful. We are children of the promise and together with Christians throughout the ages, we fix our eyes on our redeemer and walk by faith not by sight. Let us encourage one another to persevere in faith through this song: By Faith.
