Are your eyes upon Jesus

Representative Text

1 Are your eyes upon Jesus, the Mighty to save?
He’ll keep you from sinking in life’s stormy way;
He’ll guide you when walking the pilgrimage way;
Are your eyes upon Jesus? He’ll save you today.

Keep your eyes on the cross,
Keep your eyes on the cross,
On Jesus the Lamb,
Keep your eyes on the cross.

2 Are your eyes upon Jesus? tho’ trials should throng
He’ll comfort and cheer you, and give you a song,
The Shepherd of Israel, the Lamb on the throne;
Are you trusting, obeying, this Saviour alone? [Refrain]

3 Are your eyes upon Jesus in faith, hope and love?
Then ev’ry step leads you to mansions above;
No evil enticements will lure you aside,
While your eyes are on Jesus, your Saviour and guide. [Refrain]
