Lyrics

When sorrow and grief o’erwhelm you,
Bending you low with woe,
Then think of the sorrow of Jesus,
Who loves you so.

Refrain

Then fasten your eyes upon Jesus,
Jesus the Crucified;
Living is He and pleading,
Pleading for you and me.

When joys of the world allure you,
Calling you from His side,
Then fasten your eyes upon Jesus,
Once crucified.

Refrain

No matter if grief or sadness
Hold with their varied bands,
Just fasten your eyes upon Jesus,
He understands.

Refrain

In everything do Him honor,
Give Him the glory due;
And fasten your eyes upon Jesus,
Who lives for you.
