1 Oh, dying souls, look up, and see
The glorious gospel remedy!
Jesus your Saviour crucified!
Look up, and see his wounded side!

Refrain:
Look to Jesus, look, and live!
Look to Jesus, he’ll forgive;
Perishing soul, he’ll make thee whole;
Look up, look up, and live.

2 The serpent’s sting his blood can cure!
His healing power unfailing, sure
Can save the most despairing case,—
So strong his love, so rich his grace! [Refrain]

3 Oh, many a poor sin-bitten soul
Has looked to him, and been made whole,
And many a hopeless one received
A cure, who on his name believed. [Refrain]

4 His loving heart to sinners turns,
And e’en t’ward guilty rebels yearns;—
He pities souls defiled by sin,
His mercy takes the vilest in. [Refrain]
