Representative Text

1 Lift me higher, blessed Saviour,
By Thy resurrection might,
More and more, in hope abounding,
Growing upward in Thy light.

Lift me higher, Lift me higher
Lift me higher, Heavenly Friend,
Till I see Thee in Thy beauty
Where immortal praises blend.

2 Lift me higher, blessed Saviour,
More like Thee in faith and love;
May I find, in faithful service,
Fellowship with Thee above. [Refrain]

3 Lift me higher, blessed Saviour,
All my life with blessing fraught;
Purer be my pray’rs and longings,
Nobler, deed, and word, and thought. [Refrain]

4 Lift me higher, blessed Saviour,
Grace for grace, each moment new,
So may I, with Christ-like spirit,
Help to lift another too. [Refrain]
