  • 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

    Oh 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

    Through death into life everlasting
    He passed, and we follow Him there
    O'er us sin no more hath dominion
    For more than conquerors we are

    Oh 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

    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

    Oh 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

    Oh turn your
    Oh turn your
    Oh turn your, eyes upon Jesus
    Oh turn your
    Oh turn your
    Oh turn your, eyes upon Jesus
    [repeat until end]
