Without Seeing You (Haas)



Without Seeing You. Text: Inspired by 1 Peter 1:8; David Haas, b.1957. Tune: David Haas, b.1957. (c) 1993, GIA Publications, Inc. Practicing here for 10 a.m. Mass at St. Matthew's Church on St. Paul's West Side (Minnesota). Not sure if I should use my electric or my nylon acoustic guitar. Probably moving too fast with the tempo here. 

Refrain:
Without seeing you, we love you. 
Without touching you, we embrace. 
Without knowing you, we follow. 
Without seeing you, we believe. 

1. We return to you deep within, 
leave the past to the dust. 
Turn to you with tears and fasting, 
You are ready to forgive. (Refrain)

2. The sparrow will find a home 
near to you, O God. 
How happy we who dwell with you, 
forever in your house. (Refrain) 

3. Forever we sing to you 
of your goodness, O God; 
proclaiming to all the world 
of your faithfulness and love. (Refrain)

4. For you are our shepherd; 
there is nothing that we need. 
In green pastures we will find our way, 
in waters of peace. (Refrain)
