Beware of God’s eye warns my brother, my keeper
It follows you every where and there is no place
From where you can hide from it, he says.
Beware before you do or think any wrong to do
Beware of God’s eye which sees where you are
What you do, what you see, covet or envy
Is all known to God’s All Seeing Eye!
God’s eye, God’s eye? What does it see?
Does it see my unjust suffering?
Does it see my pain, sorrow or tears?
Does it know loneliness, depression?
Does it know of betrayal or desertion?
What does it do when it sees people,
Committing a sin thoughtlessly, carelessly
Just for passing time, just for fun?
What is God’s eye doing looking down,
From the sideline indifferently at me
Or is it watching my pain with pleasure
Waiting to see me fall down and die,
Does a tear ever form, seeing my plight?
Or does it not have any lachrymal gland!
