13356. Look Away To Jesus

1 Look away to Jesus when the clouds appear,
Look away to Jesus when the tempter’s near;
And, tho’ seas of sorrow lift their mighty waves,
Look away to Jesus with a look that saves.

Refrain:
Look away to Jesus, He doth pardon give;
Look away to Jesus, only look and live.

2 Look away to Jesus in the dark and light,
Keep the cross of Jesus evermore in sight;
Every hour temptation plays its luring part,
Look away to Jesus with a trusting heart. [Refrain]

3 Look away to Jesus if you would be blest,
Looking at your weakness cannot give you rest;
And when full of faith you keep the cross in view,
God sends down His peace and blessings upon you. [Refrain]
