Look to the Lord alway

Representative Text

1 Look to the Lord every hour, every minute;
If but to think that his spirit is near.
No act is good if his love be not in it,
No place is safe if his hand be not there.

2 If trouble comes, it will help and will prove us;
Ne’er will our load be too heavy to bear.
Seek him in faith who will changelessly love us,
Trusting all things to his provident care.

3 Let us then own the own Source from whence floweth
All that is good in creation’s vast round;
Each in his life pay the tribute he oweth
To him whose power and whose mercies abound.

Sankey's Sacred Songs & Solos, 1878. Nos. 16, 100, 293, and 297. A sympathetic biographical sketch, with portrait, is in The Tonic Sol-Fa Reporter, Sep. 1886.
