“When Faith Steps in” – A Song Shared by Bill Hellyer

February 3, 2012

[Bill Hellyer emailed me the following song on Sunday evening, writing, “I heard [it] on Shine the other night, by the McKameys… a southern Gospel Group… It really spoke to my Heart the other day, and the message is powerful…” Bill then asked if I could post it on my blog, and I am more than happy to do so, with continued prayers for Bill, Becky, Ian and all the family, and all of us to walk by faith until that great and glorious Day when faith is superseded by sight.]

When Faith Steps in

When you call on one who you cannot see
And you give him your heart for all of eternity,
That’s when….. faith begins

When you turn away from all of your sin
And you trust in the Lord to cleanse you within,
That’s when….. faith begins

In childlike trust you hold out your hand
Simply believing salvations plan
When you feel you can’t go on another day
Yet still somehow you kneel down and pray,
That’s when….faith steps in

When all seems lost there is no hope in sight
But still you sing all through the night,
That’s when….faith steps in

Faith brings joy and peace in the midst of the storm
It sends out a lifeline when you are tossed and worn
When you say goodbye to your dearest friend
And through tear filled eyes you say I will see them again,
That’s when….faith steps in

When you take your last breath in this world down here
And you close your eyes without any fear,
That’s when….faith steps in

Faith will carry you where feet have never trod
Safely to heaven into the arms of God
When you open your eyes to that heavenly scene
And you realize it isn’t a dream,
That’s when….faith will end

When you gaze on him face to face
And you rest in his sweet embrace
That’s when….faith will end,
That’s when….faith will end
