Eyes to See/Ears to Hear

My eyes don’t see; my ears don’t hear;

My mind does not perceive you near.

Instead with lowly fare and bland

I stuff my guts and dull my hand.

With look, with touch, with taste, with thought,

I cheapen the glory which You bought

On my behalf with pain and blood,

Which should all Earthly “joys” out-flood.

The World’s delights, though seeming bright

Are dull and dun when viewed aright.

Replace my eyes; renew my ears;

My senses cleanse with righteous tears,

That once those tears are done and dry

I might in faith perceive You nigh,

And ever more Your Glory see,

And thus more like Your Son I’ll be.
