After conversion comes a life with God. This moving song was written about the life of faith that follows a wholehearted conversion. “Lift your hands upward toward heaven now; time is too precious to waste.” It is written by Laurentze Mørch, with the melody by Anna Kjærnet. It is sung here by David Cinnamon.

You who have faith in your heart received—
Living, victorious faith—
Lift your hands upward toward heaven now;
Time is too precious to waste.
Lift up your hands so that all can see
God whom you worship and you obey.
Miracles happen by faith today;
Lift your hands upward in faith.

You who have faith in your heart received
In God, who’s mighty and good,
Sing out in boldness with all your heart
If you’ve His will understood.
All of creation in anguish groans;
Glorious freedom God’s children own.
Step out in faith and redemption comes;
Lift your hands upward today.

You who have faith in your heart received,
Listen, and then hasten on!
Time that’s remaining is very short;
Soon all your days will be gone.
O that to souls you of help might be;
All things are yours if you just believe.
Let your heart burn with the needs you see;
Lift your hands upward in faith.

You who have faith in your heart received,
Lift them toward heaven today.
Glorious promise in darkest night—
You’ll be triumphant by faith!
Lift them to God; He will surely save.
Don’t let them fall; persevere, be brave!
Lift up your hands, and the way you’ll pave;
Heaven will answer with fire!
