    “Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus”

    Hi PI readers! This week I chose to cover a beautiful, well-known hymn, “Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus.” It was written in the 1900s and published in London by Helen H. Lemmel, who, according to some sources, was inspired by a tract she received from a missionary. The pamphlet contained the words:

    “So then, turn your eyes upon Him, look full into His face and you will find that the things of earth will acquire a strange new dimness.”

    From there, she penned the famous hymn, “Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus.”

    Watch my cover to find out my favorite lyrics and other reasons why I chose to sing the classic hymnal. The version I did was a raw acoustic version, inspired by a worshipper and indie artist named Greg Attwells. Attwells is a skilled guitarist, and he has a unique and anointed voice that is very touching and inspiring.

    Check out the entire lyrics for the song to the song below:

    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.
    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 conqu’rors we are!
    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!

     Check out my live acoustic version of “Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus“:

    Listen to Greg Attwells’s song “I Need Thee Every Hour,” another famous hymn:
