When I Look Up

I look down, I see my weakness, my failures and my lack of faith

How could one so holy love someone like me?

Expecting You to turn from me, I hide my face in shame

Unclean, how can I enter Your undefiled presence?


My heart is weak, I fear to speak or look You in the eye

But You come, You cover me, You lift my head


And when I look up, I see Your glory

I see the Father of the Prodigal, running to embrace me

When I look up, I see compassion—I receive forgiveness

I’m given the power to change, the strength to live again


You are the God of Jacob—a man with a shameful past

Who seemed without hope of redemption

And yet You came—You changed his name! And this You’ve done for me

You’ve loved me so thoroughly, saved me completely


My thankfulness, too deep for words: Your faithfulness truly reaches to the sky

Now I know You are the lifter of my head


And when I look up, I see Your glory

I see the Father of the Prodigal, running to embrace me

When I look up, I see compassion—I receive forgiveness

I’m given the power to change, the strength to live again


In view of Your mercy

I’m forever transformed

Forever restored

Forever grateful!


And when I look up, I see Your glory

I see the Father of the Prodigal, running to embrace me

When I look up, I see compassion—I receive forgiveness

I’m given the power to change, the strength to live again



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
