Representative Text

1 Look up, look up, desponding one,
With doubt and fear oppress’d;
And lay thy weary, aching head
Upon a Saviour’s breast.

And thought the storm is raging wild,
Yet be not thou dismay’d;
For thou shalt hear Him gently say,
“Tis I, be not afraid.”

2 Look up, look up with tearless eye;
Whate’er Thy trial be,
Go lay it meekly at the Cross
Of Him who cares for thee. [Refrain]

3 Look up, look up, the storm will cease,
The clouds will break away;
And thou shalt rise to perfect rest
In realms of endless day. [Refrain]
