MY faith looks up to Thee,
   Thou Lamb of Calvary,
        Saviour divine:
Now hear me while I pray;
Take all my guilt away;
O, 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,
O, 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 Saviour, then, in love,
Fear and distrust remove;
O, bear me safe above,
        A ransomed soul.
Ray Palmer, 1808-87
