Blicke nur auf Jesus, wende dich Ihm zu

Representative Text

1 Blicke nur auf Jesus, wende dich Ihm zu!
Der für dich gelitten, gibt dir Fried und Ruh.
Er trug deine Schmerzen, alle deine Schuld.
Blicke nur auf Jesus, traue Seiner Huld!

2 Blicke nur auf Jesus mitten in dem Streit!
Wird der Kampf auch heißer, Hilfe ist bereit.
Scheint der Feind auch mächtig, deine Kraft nur klein,
blicke nur auf Jesus, Sein Sieg ist auch dein!

3 Blicke nur auf Jesus bei des Tages Last,
denn zu allen Stunden findst bei Ihm du Rast!
Und in jeder Lage steht Sein Rat bereit.
Blicke nur auf Jesus, folg Ihm allezeit!
