raise my eyes

Raise my eyes to see You, for low they tend to seek.

Raise my chin to You, for the earth only slaps my cheek.

Raise my gaze to You, so I can stop before I fall

Into flesh’s trap where I can’t be reached at all.

Raise my eyes to seek You; shake me out of my sleep.

Raise my heart from its weary walk that makes it want to weep.

For if I raise my eyes and focus, Lord, on You,

There is nothing on this earth I can not do.
