Turn My Eyes

lyrics

Oh my soul, I am weary and troubled
There’s no light in this world around me
My heart aches for love that’s never failing
My soul longs for a life that’s free

So I’ll turn my eyes to you
And I’ll fix my heart on Your ways
‘Cause you lay down all that You are in glory
So I’ll surrender to the light of Your grace

Death You sought, though You are everlasting
Blood You shed, though You are God
And I’m just me, confused and wild and dirty
My body was meant for Your cross

All my self, all my heart
Just take my life, rip me apart
You’re all my hope and all my sight
I must die ‘cause I’m not right
I know Your place, I need Your eyes
I want to know Your heart, want to feel Your cries
But if I have these not, You still gave Your life
You saved my soul, so take my life
