I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto Me.@John 12:32

Anna L. Price, 1890.

Dundee Scottish Psalter, 1615 (🔊 pdf nwc).

Above the trembling elements,
Above life’s restless sea,
Dear Savior, lift my spirit up,
O lift me up to Thee!

Great calmness there, sweet patience, too,
Upon Thy face I see;
I would be calm and patient, Lord,
O lift me up to Thee!

I am not weary of Thy work,
From earth I would not flee;
But while I walk and while I serve,
O lift me up to Thee!

That I may bless my tender friends,
And those who love not me;
Oh, lift me high above myself,
Dear Jesus, up to Thee!

Whatever falls, of good or ill,
Thy hand, Thy care I see,
And while these varied dealings pass,
O lift me up to Thee!

And when my eyes close for the last,
Still this my prayer shall be:
Dear Savior, lift my spirit up,
And lift me up to Thee!
