Without Seeing You

Without Seeing You

Without seeing You, we love You.
Without touching You, we embrace.
Without knowing You, we follow.
Without seeing You, we believe.

We return to You deep within,
leave the past to the dust.
Turn to You with tears and fasting,
You are ready to forgive.

Refrain:
Without seeing You, we love You.
Without touching You, we embrace.
Without knowing You, we follow.
Without seeing You, we believe.

The sparrow will find a home
near to You, O God.
How happy we who dwell with You,
forever in Your house.
Refrain

Forever we sing to You
of your goodness, O God;
proclaiming to all the world
of your faithfulness and love.
Refrain

For You are our shepherd;
there is nothing we need.
In green pastures we will find our rest,
in waters of peace.
Refrain

Inspired by 1 Peter 1:8

open my eyes

Open My Eyes

Open My Eyes

Open my eyes, that I may see
glimpses of truth thou hast for me;
place in my hands the wonderful key
that shall unclasp and set me free.
Silently now I wait for thee,
ready, my God, thy will to see.
Open my eyes, illumine me, Spirit divine!

Open my ears, that I may hear
voices of truth thou sendest clear;
and while the wavenotes fall on my ear,
everything false will disappear.
Silently now I wait for thee,
ready, my God, thy will to see.
Open my ears, illumine me, Spirit divine!

Open my mouth, and let me bear
gladly the warm truth everywhere;
open my heart and let me prepare
love with thy children thus to share.
Silently now I wait for thee,
ready, my God, thy will to see.
Open my heart, illumine me, Spirit divine!
