My Faith Looks up to Thee

Verse 1:
My faith looks up to Thee,
Thou, Lamb of Calvary,
Saviour divine!
Nor hear me while I pray,
Take all my guilt away,
Oh, let me from this day
Be wholly Thine!

Verse 2:
May Thy rich grace impart
Strength to my fainting heart,
My zeal inspire;
As Thou has died for me,
Oh, may my love to Thee,
Pure, warm, and changeless be
A living fire!

Verse 3:
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.

Verse 4:
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:
Oh, bear me safe above,
A ransomed soul!
