Look away to Jesus

Representative Text

1 Look away to Jesus,
Soldier in the fight;
When the battle thickens
Keep thine armor bright.

2 Tho’ thy foes be many,
Tho’ thy strength be small,
Look away to Jesus,
He shall conquer all.

3 Look away to Jesus,
‘Mid the toil and heat;
Soon will come the resting
At the Master’s feet.

4 For the guests are bidden,
And the feast is spread
Look away to Jesus,
In his footsteps tread.
