Give Me Faith

Teach me, O Lord, by faith alone, 

Your perfect will to prove;

And know the pow’r of Christ to atone,

And fill me with his love. 

 

Though I am sinful, all defiled, 

No light, nor love within;

Yet you can make me your own child, 

And cleanse me from all sin—

And cleanse me from all sin.

 

For you are my only hope, my only relief

O Lord, I believe; help my unbelief

 

Help me, O Lord, life’s journey through, 

To live with single eye;

In all I think, or speak, or do,

Your name to glorify 

 

So shall I walk in holy love, 

Through Jesus’ power given;

Till faith is lost in sight above,      

Among the saints in heaven—

Among the saints in heaven.

 

For you are my only hope, my only relief

O Lord, I believe; help my unbelief

Yes, you are my only hope, my only relief

O Lord, I believe; help my unbelief

 

Give me faith, give me faith

Help my unbelief

Give me faith, give me faith

Help my unbelief (and I’ll sing)

 

Hallelujah, hallelujah,

Hallelujah, hallelujah,

Hallelujah, hallelujah,

Hallelujah, hallelujah,

 

Teach me, O Lord, by faith alone, 

Your perfect will to prove;

And know the pow’r of Christ to atone,

And fill me with his love.
