Because their hearts in unbelief
Were hardened when He came,
The Savior did no mighty works
Though they had heard His fame.
For God has said His eyes look down
To show His mighty care
For those whose hearts are turned to Him
In faith and love and prayer.
Lord, I believe, but still I feel
That unbelief would rise
To quench the flame of faith within
And grieve your holy eyes.
How can I build up faith, dear Lord,
That trusts You day by day?
“Faith comes by hearing, hearing from
The Word of God,” You say.
“These things are written that you might
Believe in Christ the Lord,
And while believing in His Name
Find joy – faith’s sweet reward.”
“Build up your holy faith this way:
Pray, look for Christ’s return,
Keep in the love of God, and tell
The lost where they must turn.”
Yes, Lord, I hear You – I’ll obey,
Please give me faith, I pray,
That You might work on my behalf
And in my life today.
