FIX OUR EYES ON HIM!

“Center” by Charlie Hall is a wonderful, worship song that I heard just a few days ago. This song was playing on a local radio station shortly after I heard a sermon on the supremacy of Jesus Christ (Hebrews 1:1-4), and how we are called to love Him.

Jesus was asked what is the greatest commandment. He responded with the following answer as referenced in Mark 12.

verse 29 – The first and principal one of all commands is: Hear, O Israel, The Lord our God is one Lord;

verse 30 – And you shall love the Lord your God out of and with your whole heart and out of and with all your soul (your life) and out of and with all your mind (with your faculty of thought and your moral understanding) and out of and with all your strength. This is the first and principal commandment.

I hope that the following song will touch your heart as much as it did mine.

Oh Christ, be the center of our lives
Be the place we fix our eyes
Be the center of our lives
And You’re the center of the universe
Everything was made in You, Jesus
Breath of every living thing
Everyone was made for You

You hold everything together
You hold everything together

Oh Christ, be the center of our lives
Be the place we fix our eyes
Be the center of our lives

Oh Christ, be the center of our lives
Be the place we fix our eyes
Be the center of our lives

You’re the center of the universe

And You’re the center of the universe
Everything was made in You, Jesus
Breath of every living thing
Everyone was made for You

You hold everything together
You hold everything together
You hold everything together
You hold everything together

Oh Christ, be the center of our lives
Be the place we fix our eyes
Be the center of our lives

Lift our eyes

And we lift our eyes to heaven And we wrap our lives around Your life
We lift our eyes to heaven, to You

And we lift our eyes to heaven
And we wrap our lives around Your life
We lift our eyes to heaven, to You

Oh Christ, be the center of our lives
Be the place we fix our eyes
Be the center of our lives
Center of our lives

We lift our eyes

We lift our eyes to heaven
And we wrap our lives around Your life
We lift our eyes to heaven, to You

Source of life, Jesus

We lift our eyes to heaven
And we wrap our lives around Your life
We lift our eyes to heaven, to You

Turn your eyes on Jesus

And turn your eyes upon Jesus
And look full in His wonderful face
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim
In the light of His glory and grace
