Simple Faith

Don’t despair child of God
In the trials of life
For we don’t live by sight
But by simple faith.
Fix your eyes on the Lord
And believe in His word
Though you hurt for a time
He’ll reward… you with a crown.

All your sins were forgiven
When in Christ you did trust
The Saviour died on the cross
So that you would not be lost.
Full salvation received
When by faith you believed
To rely now on sight
Would betray… your trust in God.

 

Don’t despair in ill health
Or when finances fail
Though you loose everything
You have Jesus still.
Thank the Lord for the test
Know that it’s for the good
Though you want answers now
What you need… is simple faith.

All your sins were forgiven
When in Christ you did trust
The Saviour died on the cross
So that you would not be lost.
Full salvation received
When by faith you believed
To rely now on sight
Would betray… your trust in God.

‘For our light affliction, which is but for a moment,
is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory,
while we do not look at the things which are seen,
but at the things which are not seen.
For the things which are seen are temporary,
but the things which are not seen are eternal.’
[2 Corinthians 4:17-18]

‘For we walk by faith, not by sight.’
[2 Corinthians 5:7]
