Flying By Faith

Album: Metafiction (2006)
Play Video
  • Migrating upward as led by the Spirit
    Unerring in flight toward heaven on high
    Freed from sin's winter to enter God's sunlight
    Jesus, our Savior, calls us to flight

    Having no wings nor compass to guide us
    Only the promise of Jesus the way
    We'll rise at the trumpet and angelic shouting
    Ready to leave anytime, any day

    [Chorus]
    We're in the flyway
    Our future assured us
    Born of the spirit
    Saved only by grace
    So let's live our lives
    The more to be like Him
    Then perfect we'll be
    When we meet face to face

    Then when earth's winter has its ending
    A thousand year summer
    A new earth in view
    Our final migration
    Toward heaven will happen
    Lead by our savior
    Who makes all things new

    [Chorus]
    We're in the flyway
    Our future assured us
    Born of the spirit
    Saved only by grace
    So let's live our lives
    The more to be like Him
    Then perfect we'll be
    When we meet face to face

    Perfect we'll be
    When we meet face to face
    Face to face…
    Face to face…
