Unto My Saviour I Cry

I lift up my eyes unto the sky,
Unto my Saviour I cry.
With my heart I humbly pray,
Oh my Lord, hear me today!

Be with me as I travel this road,
Lord help me bear my load.
Without Thee I am so alone,
By the cold bitter wind am blown.

My load is far too heavy for me,
Only Thou can set me free.
As I kneel here on the ground,
Thy presence is near all around.

I seem to feel a strength so strong,
And seem to hear the sweetest song.
A peace I feel so divine,
A wondrous blessing is mine.

An assurance I never had before,
Helps me to go onward once more,
Through the cold and darkest night,
Onward Lord, unto the light.

May we still our crosses bear,
'Till we reach that heavenly shore,
And we have our burdens no more.

In that heavenly realm fair,
To welcome us with open arms,
After we have weathered life's storms.
