My Faith Looks Up To You
(1965 / Abor, Volta Region, Ghana)

My Faith Looks Up To You

I look to you in every need,
help me never to look in vain
last night between rhythms of our heartbeat
and the breath-taking feelings of love
I felt your strong and tender love
in the arms you wound round me
and I knew all is well again

sometimes I’m discouraged
in the work of life and disheartened
by the load of pain and sorrow of life
faced with fears and disappointments
I sink beside the road
but when I come to think of you
a new heart springs up within me

your calmness stills my restlessness
and around me flows your quickening spirit
what I have never told you is that
you smiles always nerve my faltering will
whenever I look deep into your eyes
while your presence fills my solitude
truly, your providence turns my sorrows into joy

if there is one wish for me
my faith looks up to you
because enfolded deep in your dear love
held in your tender arms daily
with your hand in all the things I do
my feet will not lead me to unsought ways,
instead, you’ll turn my mourning into praises
