1 Look to Jesus, weary one,
Look and live! look and live!
Look at what the Lord has done,
Look and live!
See Him lifted up on the tree,
Look and live! look and live!
Hear Him say, “Look unto Me,”
Look and live!

Refrain:
Look! the Lord is lifted high;
Look at Him, He’s ever nigh,
Look and live! why will ye die?
Look and live!

2 Though unworthy, vile, unclean,
Look and live! look and live!
Look away from self and sin,
Look and live!
Long by Satan’s pow’r enslaved,
Look and live! look and live!
Look to Me, ye shall be saved,
Look and live! [Refrain]

3 Tho’ you’ve wandered far away,
Look and live! look and live!
Harden not your heart today,
Look and live!
‘Tis thy Father calls thee home,
Look and live! look and live!
Whosoever will may come.
Look and live! [Refrain]
