I See

My eyes are getting weaker

It’s old age

Tired now from reading page on page

Tired too from seeing on the screen

What’s going on

The now and the has been

 

Greedy we are

For the latest sight to see

A friend of mine has lost his sight

Dear me

But knowing him

He’ll take it in his stride

A kindly man good-humoured

Yes and wise

 

And yet we long to see

The light of day

Just to see to see and make our way

Those two blind men

That shouted on the Lord

Do you believe he asked them

That’s the word

 

Believing is seeing

Do you see?

To see the Lord

Is seeing endlessly

And trusting him

That is power indeed

Hold on to him

Be that the daily deed
