Spiritual Blindness


Where do go who cease to be
The Lamb of God gives eyes to see
In Christ we’ll walk God’s hallowed ground
And see where all the rest are bound

Our neighbours may not know they’re blind
They think us strange yet sort of kind
They fail to see as we before
But by God’s grace that’s us next door

They need the truth to set them free
The Light of God through which to see
When now to these we spread the news
The truth may change their ardent views

Knowledge of God is near to nought
Seldom in schools is Jesus taught
The worldly youth think Christ a tale
Yet though they’re blind they need no Braille

Spiritual blind can’t read God’s word
Without The Lord it sounds absurd
But Jesus’ sheep who share His Light
Have open eyes with perfect sight

Without the truth man’s eyes are sealed
But Jesus came that they be healed
By no one else are miracles done
But by the hand of Christ God’s Son

The living truth is clearly seen
What soon to come and all that’s been
When Saul fell blind through Jesus’ Light –Act.9: 4
Twas Paul who rose with perfect sight –Act.13: 9

Change occurred as he bowed his knee –Act.9: 11
The truth of Christ was plain to see –Act.9: 18
We too when blind can join the throng –Lk.4: 18
Can serve The Lord and sing life’s song…

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
