Why we can't see through His eyes


I wish I could see through Your eyes, Lord,
especially now that things are unfathomable,
and my suffering feels interminable.
What will tomorrow bring?
Is it something better, wonderful, beautiful?
What is ahead of me that I cannot see?

I wish I could see through Your eyes, Lord
because all I could see now is a huge boulder.
Should I cross over? It could be too steep.
Should I crush it? It could take me years.
Should I change my path? I could be wrong.
Would whatever lies behind be worth it?

I wish I could see through Your eyes, Lord,
for I see nothing now but thick fog and black smoke.
Everything seems like a chaotic blur.
Truly, whatever's painful to behold, the eyes distort.
How vivid things are for You, Lord?
What is it that I fail to see?

I wish I could see through Your eyes, Lord.
Bring me hope. Give me light!
Tell me what's on the other side.
Tell me how the story ends.
And then what? Would I be happier?
No, the question is, would it make me wiser?

I wish I could see through Your eyes, Lord,
but if I could, what would be there to believe in?
If I could, would I be stronger?
If I could, would I still strive to become better?
If I could, would my love for You get deeper?
If I could, would I realize what matters most?
