Open the eyes of my heart, Lord
Open the eyes of my heart
I want to see You
I want to see You

Open the eyes of my heart, Lord
Open the eyes of my heart
I want to see You
I want to see You

To see You high and lifted up
Shining in the light of Your glory
Pour out Your power and love
As we sing holy, holy, holy

Holy, holy, holy
Holy, holy, holy
Holy, holy, holy
I want to see You

Open the eyes of my heart, Lord
Open the eyes of my heart
I want to see You
I want to see You

Open the eyes of my heart, Lord
Open the eyes of my heart
I want to see You
I want to see You

To see You high and lifted up
Shining in the light of Your glory
Pour out Your power and love
As we sing holy, holy, holy

Holy, holy, holy
Holy, holy, holy
Holy, holy, holy
I want to see You

Open the eyes of my heart, Lord
Open the eyes of my heart
I want to see You
I want to see You

To see You high and lifted up
Shining in the light of Your glory
Pour out Your power and love
As we sing holy, holy, holy

To see You high and lifted up
Shining in the light of Your glory
Pour out Your power and reign
As we sing holy, holy, holy

Holy, holy, holy
Holy, holy, holy
Holy, holy, holy
I want to see You
I want to see You

To see the Summer Sky
Is Poetry, though never in a Book it lie—
True Poems flee—
~Emily Dickinson, c.1879

For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. Colossians 1:16

words of love

WORDS OF HEALING;
WORDS OF LOVE

The humblest man can change the world
with a thoughtful and kindly word.

The tongue of the wise brings healing balm
when its cheering voice is heard.

For those bowed low with grief and woe
long for someone to love them, it’s true ,

The kind word you speak may rescue a soul,
And the heart of the downcast
will flourish anew.
***
“Reckless words pierce
like a sword,
but the tongue of the wise
brings healing.”
Proverbs 12:18

this way

wthisway

I shall not pass this way again…
“I expect to pass through this world but once. Any good thing,
therefore, that I can do or any kindness I can show to any fellow human
being let me do it now. Let me not defer nor neglect it, for I shall not
pass this way again.”

Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God. Hebrews 13:16
