Hymn – “My Faith Looks Up to Thee”

As I was praying this morning this song came to may heart and mind; so I thought I would share it.

My faith looks up to Thee, Thou Lamb of Calvary, Saviour 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 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 death’s cold sullen stream Shall o’er me roll,

Blest Saviour, then, in love, Fear and distrust remove; O bear me safe above, A ransomed soul!

Ray Palmer, 1808-1887
