The Three-fold Look

Representative Text

1 I backward look to Calvary,
'Twas there the debt was paid;
By God's own Son, who died for me,
'Twas there my peace was made.

Chorus:
Then look! look! look!
Then look to Him and live,
And you shall see He died for thee,
Eternal life to give.

2 I look around, my present need
The risen Lord doth know:
Sustaining grace for me He'll plead,
To do His will below. [Chorus]

3 I forward look, my heart is thrilled
With earnest of His power;
His coming will be joy fulfilled;
Oh, haste the blessed hour! [Chorus]

4 Dark doubts and fears ne'er cloud the sun
Of him with mind thus stayed:
The secret springs of heav'n begun,
This three-fold look is made. [Chorus]
