Representative Text

1 Keep looking up, keep looking up,
The mists will clear away;
In God’s own time His loving hand
Will brighten up the day.

Refrain:
Keep looking up, keep looking up,
The mists will clear away;
In God’s own time His loving hand
Will brighten all the day.

2 Keep looking up, keep looking up,
Th’eternal hills are there;
Far, far beyond these gloomy clouds
Are treasures rich and rare. [Refrain]

3 Keep looking up, keep looking up,
With Faith’s aspiring eye;
The promise is that help will come
From Him who dwells on high. [Refrain]

4 Lift up thine eyes, lift up thine eyes,
And take the outstretched hand;
‘Tis Jesus bids thee struggle on,
And victor thou shalt stand. [Refrain]
