210. Faith is a living power from heaven

1 Faith is a living power from heaven
That grasps the promise God hath given,
A confidence in Christ alone
Whose grace cannot be overthrown.

2 Faith in the conscience worketh peace,
And bids the mourner’s weeping cease;
By faith the children’s place we claim
And give all honor to One Name.

3 Faith feels the Spirit’s kindling breath
In love and hope that conquer death;
Faith worketh joyfulness in God
And trusts and blesses e’en the rod.

4 We thank Thee, then, O God of heaven,
That Thou to us this faith hast given;
Preserve to us Thy Spirit's grace
Till we shall see Thee face to face.
