Widen My Vision




















God open my eyes
so I may see
And feel Your presence
close to me...
Give me strength
for my stumbling feet
As I battle the crowd
on life's busy street,
And widen the vision
of my unseeing eyes
So in passing faces
I'll recognize
Not just a stranger,
unloved and unknown,
But a friend with a heart
that is much like my own...
Give me perception
to make me aware
That scattered profusely
on life's thoroughfare
Are the best Gifts of God
that we daily pass by
As we look at the world
with an unseeing eye.
