Verse 1:
B♭5                     E♭/B♭    B♭5    B♭maj7
   By faith, we see the hand of  God
E♭/B♭   B♭5                 Gm      F   B♭2/D
In the  light of creation's grand design;
       E♭2    E♭2/G   F/A    B♭   Gm7    F    E♭2     F     Gm
In the lives  of      those  who  prove  His  faith - ful - ness,
E♭                       F      B♭5   B♭maj7   E♭/B♭
   Who walk by faith and not by sight.
Verse 2:
B♭5                      E♭/B♭      B♭5    B♭maj7
   By faith, our fathers roamed the earth
E♭/B♭    B♭5                  Gm       F    B♭2/D
With the power of His promise in their hearts:
     E♭2    E♭2/G   F/A  B♭   Gm7     F   E♭2    F   Gm
Of a ho  -  ly      ci - ty   built   by  God's  own hand -
E♭                         F       B♭5
   A place where peace and justice reign.
Chorus:
B♭      Gm       E♭2             B♭
We will stand as children of the promise,
        Gm      E♭2              B♭       F
We will fix our eyes on Him: our soul's reward.
B♭       Gm      E♭2              B♭    B♭2/D   E♭2
Till the race is finished and the work  is      done,
Cm7              E♭        F
   We'll walk by faith and not by sight.

Verse 3: [Chords as Verse 1]
By faith, the prophets saw a day
When the longed-for Messiah would appear
With the power to break the chains of sin and death,
And rise triumphant from the grave.  [to Verse 4]
Verse 4: [Chords as Verse 2]
By faith, the church was called to go
In the power of the Spirit to the lost
To deliver captives and to preach good news
In every corner of the earth.  [to Chorus]
Verse 5: [Chords as Verse 2]
By faith, this mountain shall be moved,
And the power of the gospel shall prevail,
For we know in Christ all things are possible
For all who call upon His name.  [to Chorus]

The battle of faith must go on
Keep us from just singing songs
Help us to stand and believe You
Teach us to fight and press on
The battle is already won
The devil has been overthrown!
So if my God is for me
Who shall I fear? I shall not fear

By faith we will believe
In every promise that You give
By faith, Jesus, we'll live
Standing on all that You've said
We're trusting in You Lord

Help us be strong in Your might
Living by faith not by sight
Not basing our faith on our feelings
But stand on Your word in our lives
Give us an attitude for war
To fight for Your kingdom, oh God
For if my God is for me
Who shall I fear? I shall not fear

We will fight to the end
We will fight to the end
Never letting go of Your promises
We will fight to the end
Jesus, fight to the end
Never letting go of You

By faith we will believe
In every promise that You give
By faith, Jesus, we'll live
Standing on all that You've said
We're trusting in You Lord
