Alan Jackson Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus

Who is Jesus? Why do we look up to Him? Do you know Him? Here are some thoughts about Jesus.

A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic – on a level with the man who says he is a poached egg – or else he would be the Devil of Hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God; or else a madman or something worse. You can shut Him up for a fool, you can spit at Him and kill him as a demon; or you can fall at His feet and call Him Lord and God. But let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about His being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.” C.S. Lewis, British author (1898-1963)
.
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 freeTurn 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 graceThrough death into life everlasting
He passed, and we follow Him there
Over us sin no more hath dominion
For more than conquerors we areAnd 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 graceHis 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 tellAnd 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 graceAnd the things of earth will grow strangely dim
In the light of His glory and grace
