This is one of those songs that remind us the key to overcoming in any situation of life. Turn our eyes upon our Savior. Heb. 12:2
I loved this song as a child and when I finally and completely gave myself to God as an adult this song again became a favorite.
Written in 1922 by Helen Howarth Lemmel
Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus
O soul, are you weary and troubled?
No light in the darkness you see?
There’s a 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;
Over us sin no more hath dominion—
For more than conquerors 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!
