Words by John Slick
Based on 2 Corinthians 6: 9, Romans 5: 1-5, Haakkuk 2: 3-4, Galatians 5: 16-24, Hebrews 6: 11-12

Sometimes we're runnin' along
Blind to where we're goin'
Sometimes we lose our bearings
When the storm is blowin'

We know this shadow land is only temporary
These light afflictions work a great eternal glory

[Chorus:]
We walk by faith, not by sight
Strengthened by His glorious might
Walk by faith, not by sight
Heading for that land of light
Walk by faith and not by sight

Sometimes we ain't so sure
He sees us when we're kneelin'
Sometimes we forget salvation ain't a feelin'
We know that Jesus died for our justification
We grow in His image by suffering tribulations

Hold fast your confidence
You've got an invitation
To meet Him in the air
At His revelation
