My Faith Looks Up To Thee

“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might….” (from Ephesians 6:10-17)

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!

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!

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.

All through life’s transient dream,
until death’s sullen stream
shall o’er me roll;
blest Savior, with Thy love,
fear and distrust remove–
Then bear me safe above,
a ransomed soul!

Rev. Ray Palmer
