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!

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.

My mom is 85. She had Stage 3 stomach cancer. The tumor has been removed, but 3 of the 24 lymph nodes have been affected. She just completed a week of the 5-FU chemo pill. I woke up Anxious and began to pray and I believe the Holy Spirit gave me the words to this song, “Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus”. I could hear the music & some of the words, so I’m here to google the rest of the lyrics to speak to my heart. Pray for me. Pray for my mom... pray Jesus would use me to be an encouragement to her and her faith during this time... pray that Jesus protect what is still healthy in her body from the ravages of chemo and heal her of any remaining cancer!

It is 4am, I was troubled in heart when I came here. I have been a Christian 40 years. Reading your comments and singing this song lifted my spirit out of a pit. I prayed for others on this comment list. Praise God and the Lord Jesus Christ for his tender mercies and loving kindness. Set your eyes upon Jesus. Thank you for being here.

This song has truly inspired me. I am tempted every now and again. But when I say no and sing this song, things change and God's Holy Spirit gives me strength to fight on. If you are reading this, please pray for me to glorify The Lord in my life.

Just found out today that my oldest brother probably has lung cancer. He's only 16 months younger than me. This song reminds me that Jesus is bigger than anything the world throws at us. Even if cancer takes his life, Jesus will be there to welcome him! Hallelujah!
