The Eyes of the Lord

The eyes of the Lord
Bursting with light
See all that goes on
In daytime or night

The eyes of the Lord
Are ever watchful
Inspecting your life
Both the good and the awful

The eyes of the Lord
Like fire they blaze
Piercing through darkness
To save those He made

The most beautiful eyes
The eyes of our King
The only ones able
To see everything

The eyes of the Lord
Range to and fro
He sees where you are
Wherever you go

Night and day he is searching
With eyes all-seeing
For those fully committed
In their innermost being

You can’t hide from God
There’s no way you can
You can’t run from God
You’re still in His Hand

Neither waters so deep
Nor mountains so high
Can suffice to hide you
From His watchful eyes

God knows every person
And all that they do
He’s omnipresent
Your life’s in full view

Before God the Father
Your sin is exposed
Stripped of disguise
True motives He knows

Our Father is caring
You were loved from the start
He knows what is best
Knows your soul, mind, and heart

Repenting’s the only way
To make your life right
Don’t hide in the dark
Come into the light

Your reward will be great
When you give Him all
Believe in Him now
Can’t you hear Jesus call?

Jesus is watching
To see if you’ll bow
So why not commit
Your all to Him now!

-- C.V., girl, age 14

"The Eyes of the Lord" by C.V.L, age 14
This poem was written by my daughter, C.V., after I shared a message from God's Word called "The Eyes of the Lord."  I provided some minor suggestions, and a closing verse, but the poem is hers. It conveys the essence of the following Bible verses:

"For the eyes of the Lord range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him." (2 Chr 16:9, NIV)

"For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and his ears are attentive to their prayer, but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil." (1 Pet 3:12, NIV)

"Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account." (Heb 4:13, NIV)

Author's note The poems in this blog were written by my children, ages seven through fourteen. If you enjoyed this poem, you may also enjoy reading the message called "The Eyes of the Lord." The "Why This Blog" post explains how the Lord brought these poems about in answer to a prayer during illness. Poems on this site may be copied and used for non-commercial purposes, as long as proper credit and backlink to this blog is given.  No commercial use allowed without express permission from author. I also recommend visiting my children's blog, A Brush with Life, where you will also find beautiful art they have drawn for the glory of God. You can access my complete blog directory at "Writing for the Master." Now I'd like to ask a very important question.

Do You Want to Know Him?
If you want to know Jesus personally, you can. It all begins when you repent and believe in Jesus.  Do you know what God's Word, the Bible says?

“Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.’” (Mar 1:14b-15).  He preached that we must repent and believe.

Please see my explanation of this in my post called "Do You Want to Know Jesus?"
