Representative Text

1 Look up to Jesus, lift up thy neighbor,
Lead to the Savior, tell of His power,
Seek for the straying, comfort the weary,
Look up for guidance hour by hour.

Look up, lift up! look up to Jesus,
Far above the darkness where His glories shine;
Filled with His Spirit,
Lift up thy neighbor,
Then a crown, a glorious crown shall one day be thine.

2 Look up to Jesus, lift up His banner,
Faithfully follow, stand for the right,
Carry His colors where He may lead you,
Strife for the victory in His might. [Refrain]

3 Look up to Jesus, lift up hosannas,
Glad hallelujahs ringing above,
Jesus has saved us: let joyful service
Bear grateful witness of His love. [Refrain]

4 Look up to Jesus, lift up a promise,
Trustfully, truly, pray in His name,
For all the erring, make intercession,
Look up! a covenant blessing claim. [Refrain]
