I have faith in what I hope for;
I am certain of things unseen.
The universe was spoken by God;
he formed it from invisible things.
He created us from dust of the earth,
and to it we shall return.
But he indwells us with a Spirit
that evermore will burn.
By faith in Christ we are saved
because he’s defeated death.
He took every one of our lashes
until they stole his last breath.
Three days he stayed inside the tomb,
but then he rose again.
Just as the prophets had prophesied
he redeemed us of our sin.
It’s faith in him that saves our souls
from the pressing darkness of night.
This very same faith propels our souls
to the Father of heavenly lights.
Forever we will sing of his glory,
in dancing and in song.
Choir will shout and trumpet will blare
for all of eternity long.
It’s faith that keeps us striving;
faith in the things unseen.
For when we at last grow certain,
we will be redeemed.
Through faith we conquer kingdoms
through faith salvation is won.
Through faith we spend eternity
with Father and Spirit and Son.
