We walk by faith, and not by sight;
No gracious words we hear
From him who spoke as none e’er spoke;
But we believe him near.
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:
That, when our life of faith is done,
In realms of clearer light,
We may behold you as you are
With full and endless sight.
(A hymn from the Office)
