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.

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]
