We lift our songs to Thee,
Our Savior and our guide;
O make us from our burdens free,
And keep us near Thy side.
We lift our prayers to Thee,
Who only heareth prayer;
They who on earth do thus agree,
Shall find Thy blessing there.
We lift our faith to Thee,
Increased by grace divine;
Help us, O Lord, Thy footsteps see,
And on Thy help recline.
We lift our all to Thee,
For all things, Lord, are Thine;
Take us, and all we have, and see
Thy likeness in us shine.
