Faith the Evidence of Things Unseen.  Heb. 11. 1, 3, 8

I. Watts                 C.M.

1
Faith is the brightest evidence
Of things beyond our sight;
Breaks through the clouds of flesh and sense,
And dwells in heavenly light.

2
It sets time past in present view,
Brings distant prospects home,
Of things a thousand years ago,
Or thousand years to come.

3
By faith we know the worlds were made
By God’s almighty word;
Abram, to unknown countries led,
By faith obeyed the Lord.

4
He sought a city fair and high,
Built by the eternal hands;
And faith assures us, though we die,
That heavenly building stands.
