We Walk By Faith And Not By Sight (Beati Immaculati, Organ, 5 Verses)

 We Walk By Faith And Not By Sight : Lyrics

This recording of has been made to accompany singers in Church Services.

1. We walk by faith, and not by sight;
No gracious words we hear
From one 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,
Yet 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
In full and endless sight.

5. We walk by faith, and not by sight;
no gracious words we hear
from one who spoke as none e’er spoke,
but we believe him near.

How Sweet The Sound Of Jesus Name (St Peter) – Organ

Lyrics ~ 6 verses

Meter CM

How sweet the Name of Jesus sounds
In a believer’s ear!
It soothes his sorrows, heals his wounds,
And drives away his fear.

It makes the wounded spirit whole,
And calms the troubled breast;
’Tis manna to the hungry soul,
And to the weary, rest.

Dear Name, the Rock on which I build,
My Shield and Hiding Place,
My never failing treas’ry, filled
With boundless stores of grace!

Jesus! my shepherd, brother, friend,
my prophet, priest and king,
My Lord, my life, my way, my end,
Accept the praise I bring.

Weak is the effort of my heart,
And cold my warmest thought;
But when I see Thee as Thou art,
I’ll praise Thee as I ought.

Till then I would Thy love proclaim
With every fleeting breath,
And may the music of Thy Name
Refresh my soul in death!
