Representative Text

1 Looking unto Jesus, for sustaining grace,
That I may with "patience," run the heavenly race;
Looking unto Jesus, when I'm weak or strong,
Looking unto Jesus, I am helped along.

Looking unto Jesus, looking every day,
I have proved that Jesus is the life, the truth, the way;
Looking unto Jesus, I can never fall,
Jesus is my Saviour, and my all in all.

2 Looking unto Jesus, I can always see
Jesus with approving smile looking down on me;
Looking unto Jesus, I can run straight on,
Looking unto Jesus, all my fears are gone. [Refrain]

3 Looking unto Jesus, oh, delightful sight,
Jesus turns my darkness into heavenly light;
Looking unto Jesus, through the stormy skies,
Jesus gilds with glory all the clouds that rise. [Refrain]

4 Looking unto Jesus, till the hour shall come,
When he sends his angels down to take me home;
Looking unto Jesus, till his face I see,
In his unvailed glory, through eternity. [Refrain]
