Lyrics

Would you lose your load of sin?
Fix your eyes upon Jesus;
Would you know God’s peace within?
Fix your eyes upon Jesus;

Refrain

Jesus who on the cross did die,
Jesus who lives and reigns on high,
He alone can justify;
Fix your eyes upon Jesus.

Would you calmly walk the wave?
Fix your eyes upon Jesus;
Would you know His pow’r to save?
Fix your eyes upon Jesus;

Refrain

Would you have your cares grow light?
Fix your eyes upon Jesus;
Would you songs have in the night?
Fix your eyes upon Jesus;

Refrain

Grieving, would you comfort know?
Fix your eyes upon Jesus;
Humble be when blessings flow?
Fix your eyes upon Jesus;

Refrain

Would you strength in weakness have?
Fix your eyes upon Jesus;
See a light beyond the grave?
Fix your eyes upon Jesus;
