My Faith Looks up to Thee

This hymn about faith is a call to repentance.

It was written by American teacher and later Congregational minister Ray Palmer (1808-1887), and first published in 1830.

With meter,, it is set to the tune OLIVET by Lowell Mason (1792-1872).

Choir and congregation, with organ accompaniment:


Unaccompanied choral version:


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!

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 life’s swift race is run,
Death’s cold work almost done,
Be near to me.
Blest Savior, then, in love
Fear and distrust remove.
O bear me safe above,
Redeemed and free!
