Representative Text

1 "Look unto me, and be ye saved!"
Look, men of nations all;
Look, rich and poor; look, old and young;
Look, sinners great and small!

Rferain: [sic]
Look unto Him, and be ye saved!
O weary, troubled soul;
Oh, look to Jesus while you may:
One look will make thee whole!

2 "Look unto me, and be ye saved!"
Look now, nor dare delay;
Look as you are,—lost, guilty, dead;
Look while 'tis called today. [Refrain]

3 "Look unto me, and be ye saved!"
Look from your doubts and fears;
Look from your sins of crimson dye,
Look from your prayers and tears. [Refrain]

4 "Look unto me, and be ye saved!"
Look to the work all done;
Look to the piercéd Son of Man;
Look, and your sins are gone! [Refrain]
