Look On Him and Live

About the Song

Church Music Contest: Relief Society division–Award of Merit 1996 (SSAA)

This song is part of the “In Him We Live” cantata.

Lyrics

He came to earth to live as man,
That man might learn to live
Look upon the Son of God,
Find light and life in Him
He taught the sightless eyes to see,
The lifeless limbs to stand
We learn compassion’s miracle
At Jesus’ gentle hands

Chorus:
Look upon the Son of God,
For He has marked our path
Look upon His perfect life,
And follow Him in faith
In every word, in every deed,
In every joy, in every need
Look upon the Son of God
Look on Him and live

He walked in perfect holiness
Amid temptation’s power
He bids us walk in righteousness,
Unwavering and pure
The sinner found forgiveness in
His words of welcome peace
Thus we learn to come with hope
Before the throne of grace

(Repeat Chorus)

He freely drank the bitter cup
Of agony and pain
Thus we yearn for strength to say,
“Thy will, not mine, be done.”
He bore the unrelenting load
To Calvary for us
So may we learn to bear with patience
Every lesser cross.

(Repeat Chorus)
