Hymn/Song Information

Faith is a living power from heaven




Faith is a living power
from heaven.
Which grasps the promise
God has given;
Securely fixed on Christ alone,
A trust that cannot be o’erthrown.


Faith finds in Christ
whate’er we need
To save and strengthen,
guide and feed;
Strong in His grace,
it joys to share His cross,
In hope His crown to wear.


Faith to the conscience
whispers peace,
And bids the mourner’s
sighing cease;
By faith the children’s right we claim,
And call upon our Father’s name.


Faith feels the Spirit’s
kindling breath
In love and hope that conquer death;
Faith worketh hourly joy in God,
And trusts and blesses e’en the rod.


We thank Thee then,
O God of Heaven,
That Thou to us this faith hast given
In Jesus Christ Thy Son, Who is
Our only fount and source of bliss.


And from His fullness
grant each soul
The rightful faith’s true end and goal,
The blessedness no foes destroy,
Eternal love and light and joy.


Such faith in us, O God, implant,
And to our prayers
Thy favour grant
In Jesus Christ, Thy saving Son,
Who is our fount of health alone.


---Alternative verses---


Faith is a living power from Heaven
That grasps the promise
God hath given,
A trust that cannot be o’erthrown,
Fixed heartily on Christ alone.


Faith finds in Christ
whate’er we need
To save or strengthen us indeed,
Receives the grace
He sends us down,
And makes us share
His cross and crown.


Faith in the conscience
worketh peace,
And bids the mourner’s
weeping cease;
By faith the children’s
place we claim,
And give all honor to one Name.
