Alan Jackson’s Beautiful Rendition of “Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus” – A Gospel Hymn

This is one of the most beautiful gospel songs that Alan Jackson performed. A classic hymn with a powerful message of fixing our gaze unto the Lord Jesus Christ! “Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus” is a classic hymn that holds out a promise of Christ’s help for troubled souls. This song was written by Helen H. Lemmel in 1922 and inspired by the life of missionary Lilias Trotter and based off of a poem she had written entitled “Focussed: A Story and a Song.” Be blessed.

I am an historian, I am not a believer, but I must confess as a historian that this penniless preacher from Nazareth is irrevocably the very center of history. Jesus Christ is easily the most dominant figure in all history.“ H.G. Wells, British author (1866-1946) .

“I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” – Jesus Christ (John 14:6)

Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus

By Alan Jackson

O soul are you weary and troubled?
No light in the darkness you see?
There’s light for a look at the Savior
And life more abundant and free

Turn you eyes upon Jesus
Look full in His wonderful face
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim
In the light of His glory and grace

Through death into life everlasting
He passed, and we follow Him there
Over us sin no more hath dominion
For more than conquerors we are

And turn your eyes upon Jesus
Look full in His wonderful face
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim
In the light of His glory and grace

His word shall not fail you, He promised
Believe Him and all will be well
Then go to a world that is dying
His perfect salvation to tell

And turn your eyes upon Jesus
Look full in His wonderful face
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim
In the light of His glory and grace

And the things of earth will grow strangely dim
In the light of His glory and grace
