Oh, Christian, Look Up!

Lyrics

Verse 1
Oh, Christian, look up thro’ the dim night of sorrow,
Thro’ th’ madness and woe that are weighing thee down,
See! glowing above thee, a glorious “tomorrow,”
Illum’d by the rays of the “Cross and the Crown.”

Chorus
Look up thro’ thy sorrow and darkness of night
To the glorious tomorrow so cheerful and bright.

Verse 2
Nay! warrior, now pause, e’er the death-dealing dagger
Shall chain thee for ever to torments untold,
Through trials so fierce that thy soul may well stagger,
See “mercy” is waiting thy faith to uphold.

Verse 3
Oh, Calvary, goal of my earthly ambition!
Ah shield me from “Caves of all Doubt and Despair;”
Life’s warfare soon over, what glorious fruition–
For ever the smiles of my Saviour to share!
