By Faith - Keith & Kristyn Getty

Wer mich kennt, der weiß, dass ich die Lobpreismusik von den Gettys, die sie zum großen Teil zusammen mit Stuart Townsend schreiben, sehr mag. Sie verbinden moderne Musik mit tiefen und theologisch refektierten Texten.
Durch die The Gospel Coalition Conference bin ich auf ein 'neues' Lied der Gettys aufmerksam geworden, das ich gerade bei mir rauf und runter laufen lasse!

By Faith:
Words and Music by Keith & Kristyn Getty & Stuart Townend

By faith we see the hand of God
In the light of creation's grand design
In the lives of those who prove His faithfulness
Who walk by faith and not by sight

By faith our fathers roamed the earth
With the power of His promise in their hearts
Of a holy city built by God's own hand
A place where peace and justice reign

We will stand as children of the promise
We will fix our eyes on Him our soul's reward
Till the race is finished and the work is done
We'll walk by faith and not by sight

By faith the prophets saw a day
When the longed-for Messiah would appear
With the power to break the chains of sin and death
And rise triumphant from the grave

By faith the church was called to go
In the power of the Spirit to the lost
To deliver captives and to preach good news
In every corner of the earth

We will stand...

By faith this mountain shall be moved
And the power of the gospel shall prevail
For we know in Christ all things are possible
For all who call upon His name

We will stand...

Genießt es!

God's bless,

Restless Evangelical
