As I lay me down
Heaven hear me now
After giving it my all
I'm lost without a cause
After giving it my all

Winter's storm has come
And darkened my sun
After all that I've been through
Who on earth can I turn to

I look to you
I look to you

After all my strength is gone
In you I can be strong

I look to you
I look to you

And when melodies are gone
In you I hear a song
I look to you

About to lose my breathe
There's no more fighting left
Sinking to rise no more
Searching for that open door
And every road that I've taken
Lead my regret
And I don't know if I'm going to make it
Nothing to do but lift my head

I look to you
I look to you

And when my strength is gone
In you I can be strong

I look to you
I look to you

And when melodies are gone
In you I hear a song
I look to you

My levees are broken
My walls have come
Tumbling down on me
The rain is falling
Defeat is calling
I need you to set me free
Take me far away from the battle
I need you
Shine on me

I look to you
I look to you

After all my strength is gone
In you I can be strong

I look to you
I look to you

And when melodies are gone
In you I hear a song
I look to you
I look to you
I look to you

Song Information

Speaking about why the album has been named after the song "I Look to You" Houston said: "The last several years spiritually, this song says all i wanted to say. There are times in life when we go through certain situations - some not so good. You have to reach for a higher strength, you have to reach deep inside yourself, spend time with yourself to make some corrections that go beyond your own understanding and lean on a higher understanding, for me song puts it all in check. If I did not have my faith I wouldn't be as strong today."

On July 30, just one week after its premiere (and 3 days after its promotional release) the song has so far reached number 19 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Chart, becoming her 31st top 20 hit.
