Verse 1:
G5                     C/G     G5    Gmaj7
  By faith, we see the hand of God
C/G     G5                 C/E       Dsus4    G2/B
In the light of creation's grand  design;
       C2    C2/E    D/F♯   G   Em7  D   C2   Dsus4  Em
In the lives  of    those  who prove His faithfulness,
C                       D      G5   Gmaj7   C/G
  Who walk by faith and not by sight.
Verse 2:
G5                      C/G    G5  Gmaj7
  By faith, our fathers roamed the earth
C/G    G5                     C/E      Dsus4    G2/B
With the power of His promise in their hearts:
     C2     C2/E    D/F♯   G   Em7    D  C2    Dsus4  Em
Of a ho  -  ly      ci  -  ty  built  by God's  own  hand 

By faith we see the hand of God
In the light of creation's grand design
In the lives of those who prove His faithfulness
Who walk by faith and not by sight

By faith our fathers roamed the earth
With the power of His promise in their hearts
Of a holy city built by God's own hand
A place where peace and justice reign

We will stand as children of the promise
We will fix our eyes on Him our soul's reward
Till the race is finished and the work is done
We'll walk by faith and not by sight

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

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

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
