Close My Eyes

Close My Eyes (2 Corinthians 5:7)

When my eyes saw only my pain
Tricking the mind of the hurt inside
The face in the mirror
A sight of broken anguish
No peace could I find
As I laid my head at night

Until I closed my eyes
Shutting out this world of hurt
Far from my view
Though I never knew You
Or had my eyes ever seen You
I made my cry to You as darkness fell

I saw no face or eyes before
Over me You sang a lullaby of love
As Your peace covered my heart
Your arms held me tight
And I slept, there I slept
Safely with Your perfect peace

That night I learnt to close my eyes
Shut out the world and let You in
To trust in You though I couldn’t see
To place my hope in You
Not the works of this world
To live by faith in our Loving father
