Oh, let me look into Your eyes!

3/3/2017

Life’s full of changes;

Some feel good, and some just hurt.

I like the ones I plan for,

I grit my teeth for the ones I can’t.

What kind of life is that?

Will you show me where You are,

And I’ll go there,

‘Cause I want to be where You are!

There’s so much I can’t figure out,

And I’m wincing and fearing the pain.

And there’s weights on both sides,

And the balance won’t move,

And I’m lost, on a featureless sea.

But You know where I am,

Even if I’ve got no clue,

And if I can be with You then I’m free.

Jesus, let me look in Your eyes,

And I don’t need anything else.

Jesus, let me be by Your side,

And I can face the end of the world.

The complexity ends,

‘Cause nothing else matters,

If I can look in Your eyes.

I’ve always known this;

Now I know it a little deeper.

Could I have known You like this?

How much would I have missed?

If I’d been comfortable?

Will you show me where You are,

And I’ll go there,

‘Cause I want to be where You are!

Sometimes this world gets turning,

Can’t find the ground till it finds me,

And the sky feels low,

And the air feels thick,

And the wolves are howling,

And my heart beats quick;

But if I can find Your eyes,

And get lost inside,

Then I’ve found my treasure,

I’ve found Life!

And my joy can’t hide!

So let the wolves close in,

Can’t even hear them howl,

Let the world keep spinning,

I’ve found my Anchor;

Let the sky fall down - it’s just that much closer,

And I know You’re right there on the other side!

Jesus, let me look into Your eyes!

And I don’t need anything else.

Jesus, I don’t need to understand,

The only question I have left

Is why you’ve been so kind to me,

Or why you never ever waver,

Even when I make it harder for us both,

By wondering if you’ll really come through this time.

How much does it hurt You, Jesus?

Well I’m not going there today -

Oh, let me look into Your eyes!
