* That we should long for death
Leave this old body behind
with it’s grind and it’s worries
Among the rest of the blind and once-blind.
* Walking through a crowd
of those who cannot see
No one knows our hands are out
Our faces full of sympathy.
* I’ve caught a glimmer of light
I see a shaft of Heavenly glory
I sing and choke on interruptions
I trot and fall while telling my story.
* Jesus will one day send me
My half-promises complete
His hand and His heart surround me
The tangled road will uncross for my feet.
* Say love, I’ll cry
as my voice divides
my song dissolving like a whisper
Find Him here, I’ll beg
hold up a light among the blind-
Sweet to cling to the beauty of forever.
