O eyes that are weary, and hearts that are sore,
Look only to Jesus, now sorrow no more!
The light of His countenance shineth so bright,
That here, as in Heaven, there need be no night.

While looking to Jesus, my heart cannot fear;
I tremble no more when I see Jesus near;
I know that His presence my safeguard will be,
For Why are ye troubled? He saith unto me.

Still looking to Jesus, O may I be found,
When Jordan’s dark waters encompass me round;
They bear me away in His presence to be;
I see Him still nearer whom always I see.

Then, then shall I know the full beauty and grace
Of Jesus, my Lord, when I stand face to face;
Shall know how His love went before me each day,
And wonder that ever my eyes turned away.
