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!

As me and my family face medical problems, all I want to do is rest my eyes on Jesus. This song helps me to remember to walk on water I have to keep my eyes on Him. There is nothing of this world bigger than Christ. I feel stronger singing along with the music as I focus on our Savior.

Christ become more real than ever to me, whenever I turn my eyes upon Him while going through my bitter situations. He always shine the brightest during our darkest situations. And darkness cannot overcome it!

This is a fabulous site for someone who plays by ear, and can learn the melody quickly by listening to a song, picking up sometimes the melody for the verse when all I remember is the chorus to a song. Thank you so much. Would like to be able to print out the tablature, so I could use the visual notes to remember the melody, but don't seem to have that capability- maybe having to do with copyrights?

Thank You for the lovely reminder. It has been a struggle to NOT look at the world. Lord help me!

Enid Burt, thank you for your post. It has been an overwhelming year. And your words just struck a chord. Thanks.

We started off this year with nearly 5 feet of snow and trying to build a house in this winter. Both my wife and I got pneumonia...lost 7 new lambs because we couldn't make it to the barn. I am the worship leader at our church, and Only, ONLY, ONLY when my EYES WERE UPON JESUS..did I know the "PEACE THAT PASSES UNDERSTANDING." I dearly love the history and the message of this hymn.
