Living By Faith (Hymn)

Living By Faith
James Wells (1918)

I care not today what the morrow may bring,
If shadow or sunshine or rain,
The Lord I know ruleth o’er everything,
And all of my worry is vain.

Chorus
Living by faith in Jesus above,
Trusting, confiding in His great love;
From all harm safe, in His sheltering arm,
I’m living by faith and feel no alarm.

Though tempests may blow and the storm clouds arise,
Obscuring the brightness of life,
I’m never alarmed at the overcast skies-
The Master looks on at the strife.

Chorus

I know that He safely will carry me through,
No matter what evils betide;
Why should I then care though the tempest may blow,
If Jesus walks close to my side.

Chorus

Our Lord will return for His loved ones some day,
Our troubles will then all be o’er;
The Master so gently will lead us away,
Beyond that blest heavenly shore.

Chorus

This is a great hymn to remind us that we do need to live by faith.  In fact, as Christians, everything we do should be in faith.  Sometimes things get obscured and darkened and we find our faith starting to weaken and waiver.  It is during those time we can take comfort in the words of this hymn: “I’m never alarmed at the overcast skies, The Master looks on at the strife.”  Are we living by faith today?
