Keep Your Eyes On Jesus

KEEP YOUR EYES ON JESUS

PETER WALKED OUT ON THE RAGING WATERS
TRUSTING IN THE LORD TO HELP HIM ORE
WHEN THE WATERS GREW A LITTLE HIGHER
PETER LOOKED BEHIND AND SANK BELOW

KEEP YOUR EYES ON, JESUS,
WHEN THE TIDAL WAVE OF TROUBLE AROUND YOU ROLLS.
KEEP YOUR EYES ON, JESUS,
HE WILL CALM THE STORMS OF LIFE THAT TOSS YOUR SOUL.

LIVING IN A WORLD THAT'S FULL OF SORROW,
WE ARE TRIED AND TEMPTED EVERY DAY.
KNOWING NOT THE SECRETS OF TOMORROW,
WE FIND IF YOU WIN, WE WATCH AND PRAY.

KEEP YOUR EYES ON, JESUS,
WHEN THE TIDAL WAVE OF TROUBLE AROUND YOU ROLLS.
KEEP YOUR EYES ON, JESUS,
HE WILL CALM THE STORMS OF LIFE THAT TOSS YOUR SOUL.

(NARRATION)

In Matthew, Chapter 14, when the disciples were in the ship in the midst of the sea, being tossed with waves,

for the wind was contrary.

Verses 25-31

In the fourth watch of the night, Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea.

And when the disciples saw Him walking on the sea,

they were troubled, saying, 'it is a spirit'; and

they cried out for help.

But straightway, Jesus spake unto them, saying,

"Be of good cheer; It is I; Be not afraid."

And Peter answered him and said, Lord 'If it be Thou, let me come unto Thee upon the water.'

And He said, "Come." And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.

But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried out, 'Lord, save me.'

Peter was doing alright while he kept his eyes on Jesus. But when he looked away at the rolling waves about him, he began to sink.

And immediately, Jesus stretched forth His Hand, and caught him, and said unto him, "O, thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?"

Being tossed in this life by disappointments and temptations, we are very much the same as this disciple. If we want to live for Jesus, we must keep our eyes on Him, and not the pleasures of this world.

KEEP YOUR EYES ON, JESUS,
WHEN THE TIDAL WAVE OF TROUBLE AROUND YOU ROLLS.
KEEP YOUR EYES ON, JESUS,
HE WILL CALM THE STORMS OF LIFE THAT TOSS YOUR SOUL.
