Text Based On 2 Corinthians Chapter 5 (KJV)
Therefore we are always confident, knowing that,
whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent
from the Lord: (For we walk by faith, not by sight:)

Olivet (188.8.131.52) Verses/Key/v4/D
MY FAITH LOOKS UP TO THEE
My faith looks up to Thee,
Thou Lamb of Calvary, Saviour divine!
Now hear me while I pray, take all my guilt away,
O let me from this day be wholly Thine!
May Thy rich grace impart
Strength to my fainting heart, my zeal inspire!
As Thou hast died for me, O may my love to Thee,
Pure warm, and changeless be, a living fire!
While life’s dark maze I tread,
And griefs around me spread, be Thou my Guide;
Bid darkness turn to day, wipe sorrow’s tears away,
Nor let me ever stray from Thee aside.
When ends life’s transient dream,
When death’s cold sullen stream over me roll;
Blest Saviour, then in love, fear and distrust remove;
O bear me safe with Thee, a ransomed soul!
