VERSE 1 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 VERSE 2 Turn your eyes to the hillside Where justice and mercy embraced There the Son of God gave His life for us And our measureless debt was erased CHORUS Jesus, to You we lift our eyes Jesus, our glory and our prize We adore You, behold You, our Savior ever true Oh Jesus, we turn our eyes to You VERSE 3 Turn your eyes to the morning And see Christ the lion awake What a glorious dawn, fear of death is gone For we carry His life in our veins VERSE 4 Turn your eyes to the heavens Our King will return for His own Every knee will bow, every tongue will shout All glory to Jesus alone
2.
VERSE 1 Come gaze upon your Savior Behold your great High Priest Draw near in awe and wonder His cross has spoken peace VERSE 2 Come rest from sin and striving Find endless stores of grace The heart that turns to Jesus Is cleansed from every stain CHORUS Oh, how deep, how wide, how long Oh, how vast the love of Jesus Oh, how sure, how sweet, how strong Oh, how vast His love for us VERSE 3 So lift your eyes to Jesus Arise from doubt and shame His blood cries, ‘It is finished!’ Our life is in His name VERSE 4 What now can separate us? Can death or pain or fear? We have this strong assurance In Christ we’ve been brought near And in His strength we’ll labor His promises our hope Thus far His love has led us His love will lead us home!

VERSE 2 Holy, holy is the Word made flesh King who bore our pain and poverty Come to claim the rebel and the wretch Worthy! He is worthy! CHORUS All glory and honor, all power and praise Be to Your name, be to Your name For no one could rival Your glory and fame We lift high the name of Jesus VERSE 3 Holy, holy is the Lamb who died Canceling our debt at Calvary Rising from the grave to reign on high Worthy! He is worthy! BRIDGE Holy, holy, Lord Almighty Worthy is Your name Holy, holy, none beside You Greatly to be praised

VERSE 1 You slept beneath the stars You named and numbered Were tempted in a desert You designed You faithfully obeyed the law You authored The King left His throne behind VERSE 2 You washed the feet of those who called You Master And fed the multitudes with truth and bread You shared the feast with harlots and with sinners And loved those who sought Your death CHORUS 1 Glorious Lord, You are glorious Shepherd and King, forever You’ll be glorious VERSE 3 Without a word You faced the accusations And joyfully You bore the bitter cross The Innocent received our condemnation And paid for the rebel’s cost CHORUS 2 Glorious Lord, You are glorious Shepherd and King, forever You’ll be glorious Holy and here with us Let every heart declare that You are glorious VERSE 4 Beneath the earth You fashioned You were buried The Word of Life was silenced by the grave But doors of death could not contain Your glory Our God rolled the stone away
5.
VERSE 1 Come, O sinner, come and see Christ the Lord upon a tree See the crown of thorns adorn the King Who labors to breathe in agony Come, O sinner, come and see What our God became to set us free VERSE 2 Come, O sinner, come and mourn For He calls your sin His own Do you feel the weight of justice served? He suffers the wrath that you deserve Come, O sinner, come and mourn For He bears the curse for all you’ve done CHORUS Oh, the wonder of this awesome scene Where our Savior bleeds Oh, the power of the love of God Come and stand in awe VERSE 3 Come, O sinner, come rejoice Mercy fills this place of scorn For He dies to save His enemies That all who draw near may know His peace Come, O sinner, come rejoice Through the death of Christ, death is destroyed
6.
VERSE 1 Jesus, Your mercy is all my plea I have no defense, my guilt runs too deep The best of my works pierced Your hands and Your feet Jesus, Your mercy is all my plea VERSE 2 Jesus, Your mercy is all my boast The goodness I claim, the grounds of my hope Whatever I lack it’s still what I need most Jesus, Your mercy is all my boast CHORUS Praise the King who bore my sin Took my place when I stood condemned Oh how good You’ve always been to me I will sing of Your mercy VERSE 3 Jesus, Your mercy is all my rest When fears weigh me down and enemies press A comfort I cling to in life and in death Jesus, Your mercy is all my rest VERSE 4 Jesus, Your mercy is all my joy Forever I’ll lift my heart and my voice To sing of a treasure no pow’r can destroy Jesus, Your mercy is all my joy
7.
VERSE 1 Christ exalted is our song Our anthem through eternity Praises rise and wake the dawn Heralding His majesty Christ without a rival reigns Over all creation Name above all other names Enthroned in adoration VERSE 2 Christ exalted is our song The Sovereign over everything Left His glorious throne beyond Stepped into our suffering Hands that shaped the heaven’s frame Reached to heal the leper Mighty God in meekness came To lead us like a shepherd VERSE 3 Christ exalted is our song The Man of Sorrows mocked and tried Bore the judgment for our wrongs For our sins was crucified Hear the love in His refrain ‘Father please forgive them’ As He bears the bitter weight Of guilt and condemnation VERSE 4 Christ exalted is our song Buried but in vict’ry raised The keys of death and life belong To the Firstborn from the grave Glory, glory to the King! Crowned with countless praises Christ exalted we will sing Throughout unending ages!

VERSE 1 Our rest is in heaven, our rest is not here Then why should we tremble when trials draw near? Be still and remember the worst that can come But shortens our journey and hastens us home CHORUS 1 Christ our glory, Christ our hope Christ our King forevermore Be still and remember the worst that can come But shortens our journey and hastens us home VERSE 2 No hours should be wasted on seeking our joy And placing our hope in what will be destroyed We look for a city that hands have not raised We long for a country that sin has not stained CHORUS 2 Christ our glory, Christ our hope Christ our King forevermore We look for a city that hands have not raised We long for a country that sin has not stained VERSE 3 Though trouble and anguish increase all the more They cannot compare to the glory in store Come joy or come sorrow, whatever befalls The light of the Savior will outshine them all CHORUS 3 Christ our glory, Christ our hope, Christ our King forevermore Christ our glory, Christ our hope, Christ our King forevermore Christ our glory, Christ our hope, Christ our King forevermore Come joy or come sorrow, whatever befalls The light of the Savior will outshine them all
9.
VERSE 1 King of heav’n robed in light Sovereign of all, angels adore Him Came and set His crown aside Emptied Himself, leaving His glory See how He loves us VERSE 2 Son of Man robed in flesh Bearing our grief, knowing our weakness Yet despised in our eyes Pitied and poor, living among us See how He loves us CHORUS Jesus, only Jesus, humble and holy Lord, we adore You Jesus, only Jesus, oh, how marvelous Oh, how wonderful Your love VERSE 3 Lamb of God crucified Suffered alone, dying He saved us Laid within a sinner’s grave Ever He lives, risen to raise us See how He loves us
10.
VERSE 1 O lift your eyes to Heaven see The Holy One eternal Behold the Lord of Majesty Exalted in His temple As symphonies of angels’ praise Now strain to sound His glory Come worship, fall before His grace The King in all His beauty CHORUS How worthy, how worthy How worthy The King in all His beauty VERSE 2 Now see the King who wears a crown One made of shame and splinters The sacrifice for ruined man The substitute for sinners As Earth is stained with royal blood And quakes with love and fury He breathes His last and bows His head The King in all His beauty VERSE 3 Now see the Savior lifted up The Lamb who reigns in splendor The hope of every tribe and tongue His kingdom is forever Bring praise and honor to His courts Bring wisdom, power, blessing For endless ages we’ll adore The King in all His beauty

04:50
VERSE 1 Hear the thousands upon thousands roar in song Singing praises to the slaughtered Lamb of God He is worthy, He is worthy VERSE 2 For His glory He has purchased us with blood All His people joined from every tribe and tongue He is worthy, He is worthy CHORUS Jesus, the Lamb upon the throne Sing the triumph of our King Jesus, all praise to You alone You’re the worthy, worthy One VERSE 3 Come Lord Jesus, how we long to see Your face When our mourning turns to songs of endless praise You are worthy, You are worthy BRIDGE All blessing, all honor, all glory, might, and strength All power, dominion to the Lamb for sinners slain
14.
VERSE 1 When Christ our life appears, our hope will be complete Our longings finally rest as we fall at His feet When Jesus comes to reign, restoring everything Our tears will turn to tides of praises to our King We’re longing for that day when we’ll see CHORUS Christ our Savior We’ll behold the glory of our King forever Christ our Savior Faith will turn to sight when Christ our life appears VERSE 2 When Christ our life appears, the curse will be undone All wickedness will end as mercy overcomes The Savior will renew what sin had torn apart His light will drive the shadows from our weary hearts We’re longing for that day when we’ll see VERSE 3 When Christ our life appears, these trials that weighed us down Will fade and fall away as He receives our crowns And death will disappear, its rule and reign destroyed Beneath the weight of glory and eternal joy We’re longing for that day when we’ll see
15.
Turn your eyes to the heavens Our King will return for His own Every knee will bow, every tongue will shout ‘All glory to Jesus alone!’

“One of the greatest privileges and advancements of believers, both in this world and unto eternity, consists in their beholding the glory of Christ.” So said John Owen 500 years ago.

It’s still true. Nothing, in this life or the next, is more important than encountering God’s glory in the face of Jesus Christ (2 Cor. 4:6). We see that passion on full display in the songs of heaven:

“Worthy is the Lamb who was slain,
to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might
and honor and glory and blessing!”
(Revelation 5:12, ESV)

If heaven never gets tired of praising the glorious Christ, how can we?
