My Faith Looks up to Thee

2 Corinthians 5:7
"For we walk by faith, not by sight:"


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

          May Thy rich grace impart
          Strength to my fainiting 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 death's cold, sullen stream
          Shall o'er me roll;
          Blessed Savior, then, in love,
          Fear and distrust remove;
          O bear me safe above,
          A ransomed soul!
