663. My Faith Looks Up to Thee

1 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.

2 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.

3 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.
