Representative Text

1 I looked to Jesus in my sin,
My woe and want confessing;
Undone and lost, I came to Him,—
I sought and found a blessing.

“I looked to Him;”
‘Tis true—His “Whosoever;”
“He looked on me;
And we were one for ever.”

2 I looked to Jesus on the cross;
For me I saw Him dying;
God’s Word believed— that all my sins
Were there upon Him lying. [Refrain]

3 I looked to Jesus there on high;
From death upraised to glory;
I trusted in His power to save,
Believed the old, old story. [Refrain]

4 He looked on me— oh, look of love!
My heart by it was broken;
And with that look of love He gave
The Holy Spirit’s token. [Refrain]

5 Now one with Christ, I find my peace
In Him to be abiding;
And in His love for all my need,
In childlike faith confiding. [Refrain]
