Words and Music by Phil Morgan

Today the bookstore shelves are just about to overflow,
With the latest self-help guide from some smart so and so.
I have my own philosophy, it's the best I've found,
When you're feeling down, look up.

Look up Matthew 6:33 to help put first things first,
Look up James 1 verse 2 & 3 when life can't get much worse.
Look up Psalm 103 verse 12, if sin has got you bound,
When you're feeling down, look up.

I don't mean to be negative, but I positively know,
Some of these so-called teachers are just out to make some dough.
I don't need a better book, the good book's still around,
When I'm feeling down, I look up.

I Look up John 16:33 for where my true hope lies,
I Look up Isaiah 25 verse 8 each time I cry.
Look up 1 Peter 5 verse 4, someday we'll wear a crown,
When you're feeling down, look up.

"But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you." - Matthew 6:33

"Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance." - James 1:2-3

"as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us." - Psalm 103:12

"And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that will never fade away." - 1Peter 5:4

"He will swallow up death forever, And the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from all faces" - Isaiah 25:8

"These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world." - John 16:33

Look up your soul's salvation, in Romans 10 verse 9,
Look up how much God loves you it's John 3:16 time.
There's power in these pages and it can be yours now.
If you're feeling down, look up.
When you're feeling down, look up.
