1.	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!

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 Savior, then in love, 
	fear and distrust remove; 
	O bear me safe above, 
	a ransomed soul!
