My Confident Hope

Give Me Your Eyes

It is easy for me to get frustrated with people and with circumstances that are out of my control. I find myself constantly throughout the day praying that God will let me see that person or that circumstance through His eyes. When He allows me this opportunity, it never fails to humble me and to realize that we are live in a world full of hurts and we are surrounded by people who have had devestating things happen to them. Most of the time, it is easier to live in my own world, and forget that there are hurting, broken people who are searching for the truth that I have found. I came across this song earlier and the lyrincs just jumped out me. I pray that the words of this song will be our prayer as we seek to show God to a hurting and broken world.

Give Me Your Eyes-Brandon Heath

Traced out by the city lights
My world from a mile high
Best seat in the house tonight
Touched down on the cold black tile
Hold on for the sudden stop
Breath in the familiar shock
Of confusion and chaos
Are those people going somewhere?
Why have I never cared?

Give me your eyes for just one second
Give me your eyes so I can see
Everything that I keep missing
Give me your love for humanity
Give me your arms for the broken hearted
Wasnt it far beyond my reach?
Give me your heart for the once forgotten
Give me your eyes so I can see

Step out on a busy street
See a girl and our eyes meet
Does her best to smile at me
To hide whats underneath
Theres a man just to her right
Black suit and a bright red tie
To ashamed to tell his wife
Hes out of work
Hes buying time
Are those people going somewhere?
Why have I never cared?


Ive Been there a million times
A couple of million eyes
Just moving past me by
I swear I never thought that I was wrong
Well I want a second glance
So give me a second chance
To see the way you see the people all aloneChorus (x2)
