Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus /
Nearer My God to Thee

(Lemmel - Clarke) / (Fuller - Adams - Mason)


O soul are you weary and troubled?
No light in the darkness you see?
There's light for a look at the Saviour, 
And life more abundant and free:

Chorus:

Turn 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 grace.

Through death into life everlasting
He passed, and we follow Him there;
Over 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!

------------

Nearer my God to Thee,
Nearer to Thee!
E'en tho' it be a cross, 
That raiseth me;
Still all my song shall be,
Nearer my God, to Thee,
Nearer my God, to Thee, 
Nearer to Thee.

Tho' like a wanderer,
The sun gone down, darkness be over me,
My rest a stone, yet in my dreams I'd be,
Nearer my God, to Thee,
Nearer my God, to Thee, 
Nearer to Thee.

There let the way appear,
Steps up to heaven;
All that Thou sendest me,
In mercy given; angels to beckon me,
Nearer my God, to Thee,
Nearer my God, to Thee, 
Nearer to Thee.

Then, with my waking thoughts,
Bright with Thy praise,
Out of my stony griefs,
Bethel I'll raise;
So by my woes to be,
Nearer my God, to Thee,
Nearer my God, to Thee, 
Nearer to Thee.

Or, if on joyful wing,
Cleaving the sky,
Sun, moon and stars forgot,
Upwards I fly,
Still all my song shall be,
Nearer my God, to Thee,
Nearer my God, to Thee, 
Nearer to Thee.
