Only by looking to Jesus

O troubled one, you can find

Representative Text

1 O troubled one, you can find peace,
Only by looking to Jesus;
Have from sin's bondage a release,
Only by looking to Jesus.

Looking to Jesus, looking to Jesus,
Only by looking to Him;
Strong is the foe, and you can overcome,
Only by looking to Jesus.

2 You can resist the tempter's snare,
Only by looking to Jesus;
You can your cross with patience bear,
Only by looking to Jesus. [Chorus]

3 There is none worthy, no, not one,
Only by looking to Jesus;
Sinners can stand before God's throne,
Only by looking to Jesus. [Chorus]

4 Sing and rejoice, there's naught to fer,
Only keep looking to Jesus;
He in His love dwells ever near,
Only keep looking to Jesus. [Chorus]
