Being sure of what we hope for,

And certain of the things we cannot see,

We will run the race marked for us,

Our eyes fixed constantly on Jesus;

Like those who have gone before us,

And who God counted righteous by their faith,

Who in times of difficulties

Still kept their nerve and did not waver:



By faith, they fought great battles,

By faith, worked miracles,

By faith, their weaknesses

Were turned to strength and victory came;

By faith, they heard God speaking,

By faith, obeyed his word,

By faith, they persevered,

And we like them will live each day by faith.


We can learn from their example,

Though suffering and hardships came their way,

Even death and persecution

Did not deflect them from their mission;

So we too, will not be shaken,

What seems impossible shall come to be,

Having faith like seeds of mustard

Is all we need to move a mountain:


 By faith, we'll fight great battles,

By faith, work miracles,

By faith, our weaknesses

Will turn to strength and victory come;

By faith, we'll hear God speaking,

By faith, obey his word,

By faith, we'll persevere,

Until the end we'll live each day by faith.

(References: Hebrews 11; Mt 17:20)
