Turn your eyes upon Jesus...

This song has been on my heart lately. It's true, ya know. When you really, really see Jesus, the things of earth aren't as important as they once were. Not money. Not jobs. Not even relationships. I'm not saying you should neglect your marriage or your kids, or that you shouldn't worry about paying the bills. But when Jesus fills every nook and cranny of your heart and soul, wordly "stuff" seems so small in comparison.

Here are the lyrics and a video link. Enjoy!


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!
