It Still Applies?!

If you read yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, you'll know that I wrote about life issues and issues of the heart. 

And, I mentioned that we need to keep our eyes upon Jesus.

As I wrote about keeping our eyes upon Jesus, it brought to mind a hymn that I love.  It's an old one.  But, it touches me and makes my heart swell with joy and love.

Being SONday, our Lord's day, I thought it might be nice to write about this wonderful song that gives us direction and glorifies God.  And, gives us another way to worship Him.

Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus - by Helen Howarth Lemmel (1922)

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.

(Chorus)
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.


Through death into life everlasting
He passed, and we follow Him there;
O’er us sin no more hath dominion
For more than conquerors we are!

(Chorus)
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.
There is another verse, but it isn't sung on this Youtube link:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2bkMgqzWVng.  Here it is:
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.


Even though this hymn was written over 90 years ago, it still applies to our lives, today.

After all, this world is a sinful place.  Life can at times be dark and dreary.  But, our Lord Jesus, by whom we obtain eternal life, still provides the light of the world.

If you do not yet know Jesus as your Lord, and Saviour, please... read the New Testament portion of the Bible.  Begin in the book of John and read through to the end.

May you be blessed as you come to realize that you need a saviour.  And, accept the fact that Jesus... is the Saviour you need. 


Until next time...
