705. My Faith Looks Trustingly

1 My faith looks trustingly,
to Christ of Calvary,
my Savior true!
Lord, hear me while I pray;
take all my guilt away.
strengthen in ev'ry way
my love for you!

2 May your rich grace impart
strength to my fainting heart,
my zeal inspire;
as you have died for me,
my love, adoringly,
pure, warm and changeless be,
a living fire!

3 While life’s dark maze I tread
and griefs around me spread,
O, be my guide;
make darkness turn to day,
wipe sorrow’s tears away,
nor let me ever stray
from you aside.

4 When ends life’s transient dream,
when death’s cold, sullen stream
rolls over me,
blessed Savior, then, in love
fear and distrust remove;
O bear me safe above,
redeemed and free!
