Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

I look to Jesus, and the face

I look to Jesus, and the face

Full Text

1 I look to Jesus, and the face
Of God is turned on me in love,
I feel a Father's fond embrace,
And all my doubts and fears remove.

2 I look to Jesus, and behold!
My heart is lightened of its cares,
My love for earthly things grows cold,
And pleasure vainly spreads her snares.

3 I look to Jesus, and the sight
Of all that He endured for me,
Makes e'en my greatest sufferings light,
Compared with His deep agony.

4 I look to Jesus when my zeal
And faith and love grow dead and cold;
Then doth He Calvary reveal,
And makes me in His service bold.

5 Thus let me, Lord, while life doth last,
In faith look ever up to Thee,
And when life's sinful days are past
I shall Thy face in glory see.
