• “No matter! The King who placed us “there” will come and dwell there with us; the hedges are right, or He would soon do away with them.” – Frances Ridley Havergal

Thirteenth Day – Loyal Responses – by Francis R. Havergal

Looking Unto Jesus

I.
LOOKING unto Jesus!
Battle-shout of faith,
Shield o’er all the armour,
Free from scar or scathe.
Standard of salvation,
In our hearts unfurled,
Let its elevation
Overcome the world!
II.
Look away to Jesus!
Look away from all; Then we need not stumble,
Then we shall not fall. From each snare that lureth
Foe or phantom grim, Safety this ensureth:
Look away to Him.
III.
Looking into Jesus!
Wonderingly we trace Heights of power and glory,
Depths of love and grace. Vistas far unfolding,
Ever stretch before, As we gaze, beholding
Ever more and more.
IV.
Looking up to Jesus
On the emerald throne! Faith shall pierce the heavens
Where our King is gone.
Lord, on Thee depending,
Now, continually,
Heart and mind ascending,
Let us dwell with Thee.

  • “False humility and morbid introspection are, in fact, the opposite of brokenness, as they reveal a preoccupation with self, rather than Christ.” – Nancy Leigh DeMoss
