LOOKING OFF




O eyes that are weary and hearts that are sore,
Look off unto Jesus, and sorrow no more;
The light of His countenance shineth so bright,
That on earth as in heaven there need be no night.


Looking off unto Jesus, my eyes cannot see
The troubles and dangers that throng around me
They cannot be blinded with sorrowful tears;
They cannot be shadowed with unbelief-fears.


Looking off unto Jesus, my spirit is blest;
In the world I have turmoil, in Him I have rest;
The sea of my life all about me may roar;
When I look unto Jesus, I hear it no more.


Looking off unto Jesus, I go not astray;
My eyes are on Him and He shows me the way;
The path may seem dark as He leads me along,
But following Jesus, I cannot go wrong.


Looking off unto Jesus, my heart cannot fear,
Its trembling is still, when I see Jesus near;
I know that His power my safeguard will be,
For, “Why are you troubled?” He saith unto me.


Still looking to Jesus, oh, 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.


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


---Alternative verses---


O eyes that are weary and hearts that are sore,
Look off unto Jesus, and 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 power my safeguard will be,
For, “Why are you troubled?” He saith unto me.


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.
