Sunday's Hymn: 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!


Helen H. Lemmel, 1922

I've always posted a hymn that we sang in church that morning before this one but I am actually not at my church this Sunday so I don't know what was sung. I've always loved this hymn and so many times it has sprung to mind during our study of the book of Hebrews. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
