1. O have you had the vision, have you heard the cry
Of millions lost and perishing, O do not let them die;
Their souls have all been purchased at how great a cost!
Don’t lose the vision, keep your eye upon the cross.

Refrain
Don’t lose the vision, keep your eye upon the cross;
Don’t lose the vision, or the cause will suffer loss;
If you want to reach another,
Keep in touch with Christ, my brother,
Don’t lose the vision, keep your eye upon the cross.

2. The young men shall see visions and the old dream dreams,
The wilderness be watered, in the desert shall be streams,
The Spirit poured upon us, cleansing from all dross,
Don’t lose the vision, keep your eye upon the cross. [Refrain]

3. Isaiah had a vision of the Lord on high
Whose train filled all the temple and he heard the seraph cry;
O Holy, Holy, Holy, is the Lord of hosts,
Don’t lose the vision, keep your eye upon the cross. [Refrain]

4. The vision of the prophet showed to him his sin;
He cried out, Woe is me! for I am still unclean within;
The fire from off the altar purged his heart from dross,
Don’t lose the vision, keep your eye upon the cross. [Refrain]

5. The fields are white to harvest, have you heard the call?
The Spirit now is waiting, won’t you yield to Him our all?
The time is swiftly passing, O! the fearful loss,
Don’t lose the vision, keep your eye upon the cross. [Refrain]
