             (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1941)

	1. My faith looks up to Thee,  
	Thou Lamb of Calvary,  
	Savior divine.  
	Now hear me while I pray;  
	Take all my guilt away;  
	Oh, let me from this day  
	Be wholly Thine!  
	2. May Thy rich grace impart  
	Strength to my fainting heart,  
	My zeal inspire!  
	As Thou hast died for me,  
	Oh, may my love to Thee  
	Pure, warm, and changeless be,  
	A living fire!  
	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.  
	4. When ends life's transient dream,  
	When death's cold, sullen stream  
	Shall o'er me roll,  
	Blest Savior, then, in love,  
	Fear and distrust remove;  
	Oh, bear me safe above,  
	A ransomed soul!
