My Faith Looks Up to Thee Hymn


Our Faith and Inner Spiritual Strength


"My Faith Looks up to Thee" is another best-loved amongst many hymns. Some of us grew up singing it with family and family-friends in our youthful years, and through the years as adults. And we still do.

I'd like to share this timely insight I found along some of my bookmarks. It's by Sam Ervin, and as always, I hold on to my collection of quotes and insights when words don't come in an easy way. He says that,


"Religious faith is not a storm cellar to which we can flee for refuge from the storms of life. It is, instead, an inner spiritual strength which enables us to face those storms with hope and serenity. It has the miraculous power to lift us, ordinary human beings, to greatness in seasons of stress."  (Perfectly said, thank you Mr. Ervin.)

What can be the most wonderful moving force in life but faith.

My Faith Looks Up to Thee

Words: Ray Palmer, 1830.

Music: Lowell Mason, 1832

Tune: Olivet (Mason)

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!
