Keep looking unto Jesus

Representative Text

1 Would you understand the secret of the overcomer’s life?
Keep looking unto Jesus all the way;
Would you come off more than conqu’ror in the midst of ev’ry strife,
Keep looking unto Jesus all the way.

Refrain:
Keep looking,
Keep looking,
Keep looking unto Jesus all the way.
Keep looking,
Keep looking,
Keep looking unto Jesus all the way.

2 When the enemy assaileth when the tempter presses sore,
Keep looking unto Jesus all the way;
Just remember where sin doth abound His grace aboundeth more,
Keep looking unto Jesus all the way. [Refrain]

3 And when you behold the Jordan flowing there in front of you,
Keep looking unto Jesus all the way;
Just keep looking unto Jesus He will bear you safely thro’,
Keep looking unto Jesus all the way. [Refrain]
