Faith the Evidence of Things Unseen. Heb. 11. 1, 3, 8
I. Watts C.M.
Faith is the brightest evidence
Of things beyond our sight;
Breaks through the clouds of flesh and sense,
And dwells in heavenly light.
It sets time past in present view,
Brings distant prospects home,
Of things a thousand years ago,
Or thousand years to come.
By faith we know the worlds were made
By God’s almighty word;
Abram, to unknown countries led,
By faith obeyed the Lord.
He sought a city fair and high,
Built by the eternal hands;
And faith assures us, though we die,
That heavenly building stands.
