My Faith Looks Up To Thee

My faith looks up to Thee, Thou Lamb of Calvary, Savior divine; Now hear me when I pray, Take all my sin away,O let me from this day be wholly Thine!

May Thy rich grace impart strength to my fainting heart , my zeal inspire; As Thou hast died for me, O may my love to Thee pure, warm and changeless be a living fire!

While life’s dark maze I tread and griefs around me spread, be Thou my guide; Bid darkness turn to day, wipe sorrow’s tears away, nor let me ever stray from Thee aside.

When ends life’s transient dream when deaths cold sullen stream shall o’er me roll, Blest Savior, then, in love, fear and distrust remove- O bear me safe above, a ransomed soul.
