Just wondering if you have heard of Keith and Kristyn Getty? If not, you probably have heard of their work without even knowing it. Have you sung the modern hymn In Christ Alone? That's theirs and Stuart Townend's.
I love worship music, strong melody and biblical true lyrics take me places in my spirit where I can freely praise and worship the LORD. I just wanted to share a beautiful hymn these talented folks have written.
By faith we see the hand of God
In the light of creation's grand design
In the lives of those who prove His faithfulness
Who walk by faith and not by sight
By faith our fathers roamed the earth
With the power of His promise in their hearts
Of a holy city built by God's own hand
A place where peace and justice reign
We will stand as children of the promise
We will fix our eyes on Him our soul's reward
Till the race is finished and the work is done
We'll walk by faith and not by sight
By faith the prophets saw a day
When the longed-for Messiah would appear
With the power to break the chains of sin and death
And rise triumphant from the grave
By faith the church was called to go
In the power of the Spirit to the lost
To deliver captives and to preach good news
In every corner of the earth
We will stand...
By faith this mountain shall be moved
And the power of the gospel shall prevail
For we know in Christ all things are possible
For all who call upon His name
We will stand...
