Turn your eyes upon Jesus

I followed this beatuiful butterfly all over my garden just to take its photo.  Don't you think it captures Gods great creation?

Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
look full in His wonderful face,
and the things of earth
Will grow strangely dim
In the light of His glory and grace.

Turn your thoughts upon Jesus
Think deep in His comforting love
And the thoughts of self
And the sin of strife
Will be lost in the rapture above.

Give your heart unto Jesus
Cast each heavy burden aside.
And the joy and peace
Of his presence near
Will enter and ever abide.

by Helen H. Lemmel (1922)
Look heavenward
