    Verse 1
    My faith looks up to Thee,
    Thou Lamb of Calvary,
    Saviour divine:
    Now hear me while I pray;
    Take all my guilt away;
    Oh let me from this day
    Be wholly Thine.

    Verse 2
    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.

    Verse 3
    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.

    Verse 4
    When ends life's transient dream,
    When death's cold, sullen stream
    Shall o'er me roll,
    Blest Saviour, then in love,
    Fear and distrust remove;
    O bear me safe above,
    A ransomed soul.
