HYMN 120

C. M.

Faith of things unseen. Heb. 11


Faith is the brightest evidence

Of things beyond our sight,

Breaks through the clouds of flesh and sense,

And dwells in heav'nly light.

It sets times past in present view,

Brings distant prospects home,

Of things a thousand years ago,

Or thousand years to come.

By faith we know the worlds were made

By God's almighty word;

Abram, to unknown countries led,

By faith obeyed the Lord.

He sought a city fair and high,

Built by th' eternal hands,

And faith assures us, though we die,

That heav'nly building stands.
