Lift Up Thy Heart

By Kate Louise Wheeler

Lift up thy heart,
The day is bright,
There is no need of sighing;
Do well thy part,
Ere falls the night,
Be happy in the trying.
Fear not the way,
God knows it all,
His love is ever guiding;
Be true to-day,
And hear His call,
In faith and works abiding.
Look not before,
Nor yet behind,
The present is thy blessing;
Doubt Him no more,
But gladness find,
His gracious gifts confessing.
Lift up thy heart,
And like a King
Rule o’er it, faithless never;
Do well thy part,
Till earth shall sing,
And Heaven be thine forever.
