Lord God of all creation,
The sun and moon and stars,
Lord God of all the broken homes,
The slum districts and bars...
We cannot leave You in the church
Or bribe You with a prayer,
For Your eyes look into our hearts
And they see everywhere.
Your seeing eyes take in all things,
You see inside our head:
The insults left unspoken...
The unkind words unsaid.
With tears You watch us as we fight
And lash out angrily,
With cutting words we inflict scars,
Forgetting that You see.
Your grief-filled eyes strip bare our hearts,
Our prejudice and pride,
Our contempt for "the lowlier"
That we hide deep inside.
When will Your children wake up,
When will we realize ~
There's no such thing as hidden sin...
We can't escape Your eyes.
I'll never cease to wonder
That though You see us fall,
Your eyes watch us in purest love,
O, Lord God over all.
"The eyes of the Lord are in every place,
beholding the evil and the good."
(Proverbs 15:3, KJV)
