If only I could see as you see,
if only my eyes would lock
where yours fall.
My eyes are distracted by beauty,
by all that’s fleeting and fading;
I’m drawn to outward appearance,
weak at focusing on the deep.
You value truth and integrity,
humility, grace, and love;
you care not for outer facades,
but for hearts that are pure and true.
You look beyond the face
and past all the riches and status;
your eyes search much deeper within,
they settle on hearts and souls.
I’m captured by the allure of nymphs,
drawn in by the siren’s song;
if only I were blind to beauty
and could align my eyes with yours.
Help my eyes to refocus
on character, grace, and love;
I quiet my heart before you,
seeking your knowledge and truth.
I long for your certainty and vision,
I worship your wisdom and grace;
Lord, grant me vision and wisdom,
help me see the way that you see.
