Look Up, My Soul, Look Up

Don Fortner

(Tune: #187 — Blest be the Tie That Binds — SM)

 

1.                     Look up, my soul, look up,

Be calm, my troubled breast.

My FatherÕs hand prepares the cup;

And what He wills is best.

 

2.                     Knowing my fears and dreads,

He keeps my soul from harms;

And underneath His mercy spreads

Its everlasting arms.

 

3.                     His skill infallible,

In providence and grace,

GodÕs powÕr and truth, that never fall,

Shall order all my ways.

 

4.                     Before my God IÕll dance,

And every foe defy;

My lifeÕs minutest circumstance

Is subject to His eye.

 

5.                     O let me doubt no more,

But in GodÕs pleasure rest! —

His wisdom, love, and truth, and power,

Engage to make me blest!
