Full Text

1 Looking to Jesus! this my watchword be,
At every footstep of my Christian race;
Fountain of every good! I look to thee,
And trust for every help, for every grace.

Looking to Jesus!
Looking to Jesus!
Looking to Jesus for every help and grace!

2 Looking to Jesus, I attain to peace,
Looking to Jesus, I advance in strength;
Looking to Jesus, faith and love increase,
And hope grows stronger all my journey's length.

3 Looking to Jesus, I can scarce perceive
The toils and dangers of my earthly way;
There may I ever look, till I receive
His welcome where his presence makes the day.
