"I Look To You" as written by and Robert S. Kelly....
As I lay me down
Heaven hear me now
I'm lost without a cause
After giving it my all

Winter storms have 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

Yeah

And when melodies are gone
In you I hear a song

I look to you, you

About to lose my breathe,
There's no more fighting left,
I'm sinking to rise no more,
Searching for that open door, door

Every road that I've taken
Lead to my regret.
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.
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 (Whitney)
We love you Whitney, rest in peace

    My OpinionHer new album represents her triumphant return to the music industry. For about a decade, Whitney Houston’s life has been marred with allegations of drug abuse, domestic violence and marriage troubles. The public has witnessed the demise of Whitney’s music career, her character, and her faith in God. She became like many other stars who lost their career to drugs/addiction. Many doubted her return to the music industry and rehabilitation from her addiction. “I Look to You” portrays how she was able to recover and return to herself.
    The Chorus states:
    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
    This chorus explains Whitney’s solution in her road to recovery. All efforts and beliefs we have in ourselves are insufficient. Jesus is our strength, our song, our Savior; He is our Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace. (Isaiah 9:6-7) When we have Jesus and we look to Him, He will provide all that we need and lead us to Him. The chorus also gives us hope. We can see the true power of Jesus’ work in Whitney. We can see that because she looks to Jesus, she has the victory.
    During her interview with Oprah, when she released this album, she stated that she is continuing to fight and battle her addiction. Recently, Whitney Houston has been in the news regarding rumors of her odd behaviors again, as well as her concert facing many criticisms. This song reflects her constant prayer and state of heart, where she must look to God for strength, courage and salvation. These verses, “…Searching for that open door/And every road that I’ve taken/Led to my regret…” speaks to us about how only Jesus is the way, the truth and the light. We pray that Whitney continue to find strength in God and be courageous and victorious in her struggles.

    General CommentWhitney's 2009 song that was supposed to be part of her comeback. She sings to God asking for strength and affirming His presence to guide her in her life. RIP Whitney, who will be buried tomorrow after a NJ baptist church service for family and friends (in the same church she sang in so long ago). Another talented vocalist to leave us too soon...

    My OpinionWhat a beautiful song. This demonstrates Whitney's mastery in the gospel music genre. Sung by a different artist, someone without the life challenges she faced could sing this for you, and you'd think 'pretty song'. Whitney literally rips her heart out for this song and one can hear in her voice all the struggle and pain she has lived in her life. In this recording, she simply sings to God, as deep in prayer, full of question, regret, joy, innocence and heartache.

    It literally moves me to tears each and every time I hear it.
