Walk By Faith
Would I believe you when you would say
Your hand will guide my every way?
Will I receive the words you say
Every moment of every day?
Well I will walk by faith
Even when I cannot see
Well because this broken road
Prepares your will for me
Help me to win my endless fears
You've been so faithful for all my years
With one breath you make me new
Your grace covers all I do, yeah, yeah, yeah yeah yeah
Well I will walk by faith
Even when I cannot see
Well because this broken road
Prepares your will for me
Well I'm broken, but I still see your face
Well you've spoken, pouring your words of grace
Well I will walk by faith
Even when I cannot see
Well, because this broken road
Prepares your will for me
Well I will walk by faith
Even when I cannot see
Oh well, because this broken road
Prepares your will for me
I will walk by faith, I will walk by faith
(Hallelu) I will walk by faith, I will walk by
(Well hallelujah, hallelu) yeah, yeah
(Well hallelujah, hallelu) yeah, yeah
(Well hallelujah, hallelu) yeah, I will walk, I will walk, whoa, I will walk by faith
(Well hallelujah, hallelu) I will, oh yeah, I will, well I will walk by faith
(Well hallelujah)
