VERSE 1

D 
My faith looks up to Thee,

A 
Thou Lamb of Calvary,

D  A   E7 A 
Savior divine!

D 
Now hear me while I pray,

Take all my guilt away;

Bm D   G  D 
O  let me from this day

   Em  A  D 
Be wholly Thine.

VERSE 2

D 
May Thy rich grace impart

A 
Strength to my fainting heart;

D  A    E7 A 
My zeal inspire;

D 
As Thou hast died for me,

O may my love to Thee

Bm    D     G   D 
Pure, warm, and changeless be

  Em A   D 
A living fire.

VERSE 3

D 
While life's dark maze I tread,

A 
And griefs around me spread,

D  A    A7 A 
Be Thou my guide;

D 
Bid darkness turn to day,

Wipe sorrow's tears away,

Bm   D  G  D 
Nor let me ever stray

     Em   A D 
From Thee aside.

VERSE 4

D 
When ends life's transient dream,

A 
When death's cold, sullen stream

D     A    E7 A 
Shall o'er me roll.

D 
Blest Savior, then, in love,

Fear and distress remove;

Bm D    G  D  
O  bear me safe above,

  Em A     D 
A ransomed soul.
