Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Keep looking unto Jesus

Full 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]
