Lyrics:

Gaze upon the Lord;
Gaze upon his face;
Gaze upon the one
Who holds you in his embrace.
Gaze upon his love
Gaze upon his coming poor
From heav’n above.

Look upon your Lord,
Look upon his way,
Look upon his heart
That opens to each day.
Though he was despised,
The lowest of all men,
Look upon his sacred cross
Which brings life again.

If you open to life’s pain,
Then with it you shall reign
And allow your heart to weep
And with Him you’ll rejoice
Open to His Cross
The wounds of each day’s love
Then you’ll know the splendour
Of His kingdom above

Gaze upon his life,
Gaze upon his love
Gaze upon his coming home
From heaven above,
From heaven above.
