~Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus


       The author and composer of this hymn, Helen H. Lemmel, relates that one day, in 1918, a missionary friend gave her a tract entitled “Focused.”

       The pamphlet contained these words—

       “So then, turn your eyes upon Him, look full into His face and you will find that the things of earth will acquire a strange new dimness.”

       These words made a deep impression upon Helen Lemmel. She could not dismiss them from her mind. She recalls this experience following the reading of that tract:

       “Suddenly, as if commanded to stop and listen, I stood still, and singing in my soul and spirit was the chorus, with not one conscious moment of putting word to word to make rhyme, or note to note to make melody. The verses were written the same week, after the usual manner of composition, but none the less dictated by the Holy Spirit.”

—Adapted from Kenneth Osbeck

Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus

      

(1) 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.

      

(2) 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!

      

(3) 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!
