‘Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus,’ a timeless classic hymn, reminding us of our need to focus on Jesus in every circumstance that we face in our lives. It encourages us to fix our eyes unto Him, who is the author and finisher of our faith. Whatever hardships and trials that come our way that seem to crush us down in helplessness and sorrow, the Lord is just there to lift us up and give us a new life in Him.
Alan Jackson sings his own country version of ‘Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus’ with a piano accompaniment in an auditorium. The audience just listens and meditate on the message of this beautiful classic. The song was also sung by other Christian artists, like Sandi Patty, Hillsong, Michael W. Smith etc., and continues to speak to people’s heart whenever it is sung.
Time and time again, the song has never lost its heavenly touch on those who listen to it. It delivers a powerful message to everyone that God cares for us. We only have to look unto Him and believe His promises. He’s always there ready to show up in power whenever we call upon His name.
“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore, we will not fear, even though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; though its waters roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with its swelling.” – Psalm 46:1-3
