Look Up and not Down

Representative Text

1. Look up and not down, O Christians!
For the Cross points up to the sky,
And our prayers ascend, as our kness we bend
To our God who dwelleth on high.

2. Look out and not in, O Brothers!
For the arms of the Cross stretch wide,
And the Saviour will bind all human-kind,
On the heart that was crucified.

3. Look forward, not back, O Soldiers!
For the light of the Cross has come,
And 'tis God's own hand that giveth the land,
To the armies of Christendom.

4. Lend a hand, lend a hand, O Comrades!
And together the Cross upraise,
For to cheer the sad, and to make hearts glad
Is the fulness of mortal praise.
