Faith is the evidence of your way.
If it is the substance, the validation of what’s right,
It demands belief in what you say,
Then I must ask for you to take from me
All proof, all evidence, all sight
That I am on the path that only leads to thee
And nothing but believing is what is right.
For such a request is strange indeed.
I’m not sure that I can stand
With no validation, nothing guaranteed,
But faith in your supplying hand.
Can I fully live with no comfort
To completely trust in you?
Can I remove all my support
And expect faith to get me through?
If I understand, you strength is only found
In the faith I have in your Word.
All other proofs will make me weak.
I trust in you, my Lord.
If I understand, this life is a test
For what I truly believe.
If you remove from me life’s best,
In eternal life I will receive.
