Turn Your Eyes upon Jesus
Words and Music by Helen Holwarth Lemmel

Hebrews 12:2
"Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith;
who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross,
despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God."

          O soul are you weary and troubled?
          No light in the darkness you see?
          There's light for a look at the Savior,
          And life more abundant and free.

            Chorus
            Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
            Look full in His wonderful face,
            And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
            In the light of His glory and grace.

          Thro' death into life everlasting
          He passed, and we follow Him there;
          Over us sin no more hath dominion -
          For more than conqu'rors we are!

            Chorus
            Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
            Look full in His wonderful face,
            And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
            In the light of His glory and grace.

          His word shall not fail you - He promised;
          Believe Him, and all will be well;
          Then go to a world that is dying,
          His perfect salvation to tell.

            Chorus
            Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
            Look full in His wonderful face,
            And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
            In the light of His glory and grace.
