Hymn Of The Month


MY FAITH LOOK UP TO THEE *

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 distress remove,
O bear me safe above
A ransomed soul.

*Ray Palmer; music by Lowell Mason; (1832)
