211. My faith looks up to thee


Lowell Mason, 1833

Ray Palmer, 1830

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 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 Savior, then in love,

Fear and distrust remove;

O bear me safe above,

A ransomed soul!
