Blessings Cathy...What a beautiful rendition of "Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus" and a great reminder for us all...no matter what our situation.
Forgive me but I did not know Alan Jackson...so I checked out his website:

and I should have guessed that he was country western but nonetheless sang this with just beauty, respect & grace. Totally awesome voice & tone & pace. Thank you for sharing this...the video was beautiful!

EnJOY TSMSS, be blessed as you bless and have a wonderful weekend!

This song was always sung right before the first morning service began in the church I attended, like 15 years ago. This choice of yours today brought me back memories when life was simple and peaceful. Thanks.

I've loved this song ever since the first time I heard it many years ago. I still can't sing it or listen to it without "choking up". This is a beautiful version of it. Thank you for posting it.
