Lord, though my eyes can see,
at times I wish I were blind
so I didn’t have to watch . . .
the destruction of mankind.
I don’t want to be an observer,
to the cruel and evil things
happening everyday in the world
nor the destruction it brings.
I don’t want to be an onlooker,
to those who are oppressed
nor be a bystander while others
freedoms are being suppressed.
I don’t want to be a viewer,
to the gory executions
nor be an armchair eye-witness
to the hateful persecutions.
Lord, I thank you for my sight,
but, all I really want to see . . .
is the Truth, Life and Way
to come and set the world free!
“Jesus saith unto him,
I am the way, the truth, and the life:
no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
