Sunday Reflections Hymn- My Faith Looks Up to Thee

Listen Here :Sunday Reflections Hymn- 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.


Ray Palmer (1808-1887)

  1. I grew up doing youth groups, church camps, bible studies in the 70s, singing Christian folk music, Christian Rock, Praise songs. I’m sure not against them at all. However, when we gather as the local Church our job is to be “we” not “me”. And solid facts and truths are to be proclaimed in our midst, not just speculation about culture, politics, pop-psychology served with a twist of Christianese. And the tendency is not just recent but has ever been suffered by those who seek to worship God and those who seek to use Christianity as a self-actualization program.
    I can’t recall the last time I sang this hymn, but the tune came instantly to me as I started reading the lyrics. Solid substance, sing all the verses, nothing abbreviated so the preacher can speak longer or the church can release sooner.
    Thank you for continuing to post these hymns. They are a service to God’s congregation, wherever we find ourselves.
