Sense of Sight

sense-of-sight

I dare not look away,

Neither night nor day,

My heart beats for Him,

And belongs to Him.

If I step aside for a moment,

It truly longs for Him.

When we are together,

Or should I be away from Him,

It is singing songs for Him.

And He also sings them.

I dare not look away,

Neither night nor day,

From a piercing but loving gaze.

My eyes behold His face,

I hold hold His hand

And He walks with me always.

No matter the day,

Fierce devotion, will arise.

And I look to heaven,

And open my eyes.

He is my heaven,

My sense of sight,

And I love Him,

With all my heart and might.

I dare not look away,

Neither night nor day,

From the protector and perfecter of my praise.

Turning my eyes to Jesus,

And He walks with me always.

 

For Cynthia, who inspired me. A Mother’s Day Bonus from me.

Painting, Annie Louisa Swynnerton, British artist, 1844-1933
