in our hearts,
It is by looking toward you,
by gathering in your name,
that your Church grows in unity.
Enable us to love faithfulness
and to walk with you.
You guide our steps
on the paths of peace.
Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus
by Helen H. Lemmell, 1922
- 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!
