Turn your eyes upon Jesus

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.
  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.
Through death into life everlasting
He passed, and we follow Him there;
O’er us sin no more hath dominion
For more than conqu’rors we are!
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!

The Holy Spirit put this song on my heart this morning. The first part of the chorus, turn your eyes upon Jesus, look full in His wonderful face, played over and over in my heart. I haven't thought of and have not heard this song in years. I looked up the song to remember the rest of the chorus and verses, and found this site. Reading other's comments blessed me, so I am leaving one as well. May God bless all of us, His precious children, as we look to Jesus and trust in Him. Makes me think of a favorite scripture, Psalm 61:2 "When my heart is overwhelmed, lead me to the Rock that is higher than I." Thank you precious Jesus, my Savior, Redeemer, and Restorer, for Your peace and love! I've been praying the scriptures John 14:27 and Matthew 11:28. I hope these scriptures help anyone else who comes across this. Jesus is right there with you. You are not alone!

This hymn really speaks to me. As a follower of Jesus worldly temptations have lost their appeal and I feel content not seeking these things. My spirit longs to be closer with the Lord and that more people will discover the peace and comfort of trusting in Him.

Woke up with this hymn in my spirit. Searched it out, in the light of 1john 3:2.. I am glad because of the peace this song brings.

This song has been on my mind whole day, I came here for I didn’t remember the full lyrics. Powerful! I am touched by the words of this hymn for I know that my Jesus is by my side always. He will never leave me nor forsake me. I will fix my eyes on Jesus for in him there is abundant life, rich and free. In Him there is Salvation, eternal life; in Him we are more than conquerors! In Him we have Hope!! Prayers for those persons I have come across here. God bless you.
