"STRANGELY DIM"

Verse 1
"Turn your eyes upon Jesus" are
The words that ring out from an old, old hymn,
And it's incredible indeed how strangely, strangely, strangely dim
This old world becomes once you've looked at Him.

When you've traveled up that long, dark tunnel,
Been found by a golden glow at the end,
In the presence of the only One
With the power to take a life & give it back again,

All those Earthly trials & triumphs,
Looming large moments before,
They melt down to close to nothing
Once you're standing at Forever's door.

Chorus 1
Strangely dim, in the Light and Glory, all grows
Strangely dim, & now I'm back to tell my story.
I'll never be the same.
Strangely dim, all those things that mattered so much.
Strangely dim, I never knew that I could find such,
Such treasure in this mortal frame.

Verse 2
There's a Light you can feel like a soft, warm robe;
The most loving voice, like the sweetest tune.
And looking back at the life you've lived
Is like seeing the Earth from the surface of the moon.

It's like being part of everything,
But small as nothing at the very same time.
In an instant that spans an eternity;
Like being in a dream, but you know you're wide awake,
Wide awake & aware,
Aware that we're not alone & not without a destiny.

So awestruck by the circumstance,
And infinitely humbled just to be in the Presence of
The Father of Lights, the Great Creator,
And now know all you that matters is His Love.

Chorus 2
Strangely dim, in the Light and Glory, all grows
Strangely dim, & now I'm back to tell my story.
I'll never be the same.
Strangely dim, all those things that mattered so much.
Strangely dim, I never knew that I could find such
Treasure in this mortal frame-

Bridge
Now whenever I'm weary, I know there's a Place,
A picture in my mind of that wonderful face
That makes all Earth's treasures growing old,
And all that's glistening but not real gold,
And all the obstacles in my race they go …

Chorus 3
Strangely dim,
Strangely dim,
I'm never gonna be the same.
Strangely dim, all those things that mattered so, so much,
Strangely dim, they all seem to grow

Strangely dim, strangely dim when I look at Him.
Strangely dim, strangely dim when I look at Him.
Strangely dim, strangely dim when I look at Him,
When I look at Him.
