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!

What a wonderful song this is... Just very cohesive with a certain message from the Numbers training! Touching the throne of grace with boldness because Christ gives us the standing. Turning our eyes upon Jesus.... Now!

This song came to me a few weeks ago and reminded me of how much the Lord loves us and how easy it is for His grace be given us. Thank You Lord that this song was part of my childhood and You brought it to my remembrance!

After my morning prayer, the verse "Turn your eyes up Jesus . . ." came to me. I looked in the hymn book I have. It was not in there!!! So I found here, as so many of you have. Thank You, God for helping me to find ALL the words to this wonderful song!

I and so many, will be forever blessed by this beautiful and powerful hymn, as it does always encourages and uplifts the downcast of spirit. Praise the Lord!

Sometimes the world makes us feel so tired, weary and troubled. But praise the Lord no matter the situation we can turn our eyes upon Him. Look full in His wonderful face!

Going through a very difficult season in my life and this song came to mind this morning. I have only known the chorus for more than 40 years, but I had the thought that maybe there were verses to this song. Thank You, LORD, for finding the full song on the Internet and for this website, with testimonies how this song has encouraged other believers from around the world It has helped me to turn my eyes upon Jesus again.

Just about healed from a broken relationship when my ex girlfriend walks into church, sits behind me with her new boyfriend and hold hands with him while praying. That hurt.

This song puts everything back in perspective for me as His love for me makes all else dim.
