A Gospel Song a Day Keeps the Blues Away – Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus

In my world, Alan Jackson doesn’t need an intro, nor does this song. I will mention that this is from Alan Jackson’s “Precious Memories” CD and the whole thing is worth twice what you’ll pay.

Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. –Hebrews 12:2

Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus
by Helen H. Lemmel

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!

Chorus:
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!
