Eye Has Not Seen
Eye has not seen, ear has not heard
what God has ready for those who love him;
Spirit of love, come, give us the mind of Jesus,
teach us the wisdom of God.
1. When pain and sorrow weigh us down,
be near to us, O Lord,
forgive the weakness of our faith,
and bear us up within your peaceful word.
2. Our lives are but a single breath,
we flower and we fade,
yet all our days are in your hands,
so we return in love what love has made.
3. To those who see with eyes of faith,
the Lord is ever near,
reflected in the faces of all the poor
and lowly of the world.
4. We sing a myst'ry from the past,
in halls where saints have trod,
yet ever new the music rings
to Jesus, Living Song of God.
