Looking Unto Jesus...

I came across a 'new to me' song this week.
The words were a real blessing to me.
I sang it this morning at church
and wanted to share the words.





Looking Unto Jesus


I'm looking unto Jesus;
He's my Savior and my friend,
The Author and Creator,
Beginning and the End.
Oh, my eyes are fixed upon Him,
He who died to take my place.
My heart is bent to serve Him;
His pattern I must trace.


{Chorus}
I'm looking unto Jesus
I'm feasting on His Word.
I'll turn not to the left, the right,
I will not face the rear.
When friend or foe forsake me,
Lord, I will not shrink in fear.
I am looking to the King of kings.


I'm looking unto Jesus,
He, who laid out ev'ry course.
He's run the race before us,
of strength, the runner's source.
Oh, consider with attention
He who took a servant's form;
Completed the requirement,
to His Father's will conformed.


{Chorus}
I'm looking unto Jesus
I'm feasting on His Word.
I'll turn not to the left, the right,
I will not face the rear.
When friend or foe forsake me,
Lord, I will not shrink in fear.
I am looking to the King of kings.


I'll run the race with patience,
and endure what God seems best.
I'll lay aside the sinful weights
that make me fail the test.
I will search the Holy Scriptures
that can ev'ry problem solve.
I'll serve my God and Savior
and that with great resolve!


{Chorus}
I'm looking unto Jesus
I'm feasting on His Word.
I'll turn not to the left, the right,
I will not face the rear.
When friend or foe forsake me,
Lord, I will not shrink in fear.
I am looking to the King of kings.




"Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about
with so great a cloud of witnesses,
let us lay aside every weight,
and the sin which doth so easily beset us,
and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith;
who for the joy that was set before him
endured the cross, despising the shame,
and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
For consider him that endured
such contradiction of sinners against himself,
lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds."
~ Hebrews 12:1-3

Christina,
This song really blessed my heart! Thank you so much for recording it for us to hear.

Hope you are having a wonderful week with VBS. I know it is always a great week, yet an exhausting one too.

Have a wonderful evening, and thanks again for helping me with my blog!
