1 Look up, and rejoice! for the light is now shining,
Lift up ye the fallen, and rescue the lost;
“For Christ and the Church,” this your constant Endeavor,
Be loyal to Jesus, whatever the cost.

Refrain:
Look up, look up, His holy word believe;
Look up, look up, His blessing now receive,
“For Christ and the Church,” this your constant Endeavor,
Be loyal to Jesus, whatever the cost.

2 Look up, and rejoice! for the light is now shining,
Look up, and the gladness of heaven receive;
Thy heart with the presence of Jesus o’erflowing,—
How sweet in the truth of His word to believe. [Refrain]

3 Look up, and rejoice! for the light is now shining,
Look up, and away thro’ the calm ether sky;
Where Christ with His own soon in triumph shall bring thee
To beautiful mansions preparing on high. [Refrain]
