Walking by Faith

This is one of my favorite hymns, 720 in Lutheran Service Book.  We Walk by Faith and Not by Sight, verses 1-3, text by Henry Alford:

We walk by faith and not by sight,
No gracious words we hear
From Him who spoke as none e'er spoke,
But we 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 then, O Lord, our unbelief;
And may our faith abound
To call on You when You are near
And seek where You are found.

I could quote verses from other hymns, like "How Firm a Foundation,"  and "I am Trusting Thee, Lord Jesus"...maybe another day.  :)
