Your Eyes~ a Poem

As You see, Lord, let me see.
Teach my eyes Your sight.

Teach my heart to comprehend
Your sorrow through the night.

Teach my eyes to see the tears
Of shame and agony;

And have compassion on the fears
Of other beings like me.

Let me see their broken forms
As You see them, Lord.

Show my feet the path through storms
That my eyes never could.

Strip away the fleeting hopes
And teach my soul to know

All things as they really are,
In fallen, sinning woe.

Then take my eyes and give them sight,
And break my heart of stone,

Give faith and hope and grace and might
Through Your love alone.

Show me how I look to You,
In sinning broken-ness and shame,

And give me strength to start anew
In Your blessed, holy name.

Strip away the false in me;
Cleanse my heart of lies,

And teach my fallen soul to see
The world through different eyes.
