My faith looks 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;
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 thru life's transient dream,
Until death's sullen stream
  Shall o'er me roll,
Blest Savior, with Thy love,
Fear and distrust remove;
Make me Thy grace to prove
  Transform my soul.

I am thrilled that the Holy Spirit led me to present this hymn at the Hour of Praise and Hymn singing on air. At such a perilous time in our world there is no other anchor to hold us than faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. We need to fix our gaze on Him in faith.


Beautiful song. I'm comforted

The Holy Spirit brought this hymn very strongly to my heart this morning after my quiet time with the Lord.

I looked for my hymn book but could not see it. I had to sing it through this medium.

I know the Lord is telling me and others to look unto him in this trying times in the world.

He will see us through by his Grace.

This song came to my mind, very strong in the early hours of today. I know God was trying to remind me to keep looking up to Him. Too much scary news in the media. Glory be to God for He still speaks

This song came to me early this morning as I was thinking about my present state and my future. I started singing in my native language, I later realised I needed to get the English version and sing the whole stanzas. Praise God for the prayers in the song and for the inspiration. I am blessed with other's comments as well.

It's been a while since I woke up with a hymn on my mind. I woke up singing this hymn this morning and I had to look it up. To God be the glory. I am thoroughly blessed with the assurance of God's presence as written in the hymn.

The Holy Spirit brought this song to my mind this morning while washing my hair! It is a perfect song for this time in our world. Thanks and praise be to God for reminding us that we are His. My heart swelled when I read that God has also brought this great hymn to the minds and hearts of many of His children!
