When Jesus Looks Upon My Life

When Jesus Looks upon my life
what picture does He see
Does He see His own reflection
Or does He just see me

Does He see His Likeness
The product of His hand
Or just another Christian
Who never took a stand

Does He see a child of God
A child that He set free
Living life to honor Him
Or does He just see me

What about other folks
I meet along the way
Do I show them Jesus
To brighten up their day

When someone looks into my eyes
Can they truly see
That calm and gentle peace of God
That dwells inside of me

When I reach out and shake a hand
Is He right there in my grip
Can they feel the strength from God
That steadies when I slip

When folks are in my presense
Do they know His Spirit's there
can they see that He's the One
Who guides me everywhere

When other people think of me
What is on their mind
Do they think of Jesus Christ
So gentle and so kind

I try to be like Jesus
Every single day
Spreading Love and Kindness
All along my way

I'm afraid that I have failed
I could not pass the test
Deep inside my heart I know
I haven't done my best

I have to fight my flesh
Since the day that I was born
It's always causing trouble
And being such a thorn

That's why His Spirit dwells in me
He's helping me to learn
In every situation
Where I need to turn

He knew I'd never pass the test
That's why He took my place
He gave His life to save my soul
He suffered my disgrace

Now I try to be like Him
I must present Him well
So other folks will want His Gift
And turn their backs on hell

Other folks should see the Joy
That Christ has given me
They should want to have it too
Especially since it's free

They should begin to ask me
What is it that they must do
Just how it is they go about
Getting Jesus Too

Then I get to tell them
This wondrous gift is free
It only takes a humble heart
A prayer on bended knee

Someday when I' m face to Face
With the Lord who set me free
Will He see His own Reflection
Or will He just see me?
