A Bit About The Song…

My Faith Looks Up To Thee

This well-known hymn was written by Ray Palmer, considered to be one of America’s Best Known hymn writers from the 1800s. 

 the creative process brings us very close to the Creator. Anyone who paints or writes music or poetry or stories can attest that sometimes they take time. Other times it is as if another spirit is pouring through us something special, something otherworldly.

When Ray Palmer wrote this hymn he was fresh from college. It was 1830. He said this about the song’s composition: “ I gave form to what I felt, by writing, with little effort, the stand says. I recollect I wrote them with very tender emotion and ended the last line with tears.”

The Lord promises that he will send his holy spirit to be with us, to comfort us.

In Greek mythology, the nine Muses were nine goddesses who symbolized the Arts and Sciences.

 We can all surely test that there are only two sources of inspiration for our creativity.

The effect of the art or creation on those who experience it clearly can show all who the author and inspiration truly were.

“Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.”
Revelation 1:7

Lyrics

 

My faith looks up to Thee

Thou Lamb of Calvary

Savior Divine

Now hear me while I pray

Take all my guilt away

Oh 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

Oh 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 today

Wipe sorrow’s tears away

Nor let me ever stray from Thee aside
