With Our Eyes on the Cross


The Apostle Paul exhorted the early Christians in Philippi to think about “whatever is true…honorable…just…pure…lovely…gracious.” In Hebrews, the author encourages “let us…persevere in running the race that lies before us while keeping our eyes fixed on Jesus.” Our focus is important! In “With Our Eyes on the Cross,” Greg Walton’s scripturally-rooted lyrics show how our focus on the sacrifice and call of Christ leads us to love for our neighbor and into unity with each other.

Oh, the riches of this life.
Oh, the ways we have been blessed.
Oh, the poverty we own
in the things that we possess.
You ask us to lay down
all the treasure we have stored
for the treasure of your kingdom
and a narrow road.

With our eyes on the cross, eyes on the cross,
with our eyes on the cross we will see.
With our eyes on the cross, eyes on the cross,
with our eyes on the cross we will see.

We have more than we could need,
all our fill of daily bread,
but the son of righteousness
has no place to lay his head.
And all this world’s a feast,
but he draws us to a table
where the greatest and the least
come as equals.

We will see no us or them, no slave or free.
We will see all of our sad divisions cease.
In his suffering the walls come tumbling down
and we become we, with our eyes on the cross.
