Lift My Eyes

Help me lift my eyes to see

This beautiful reality

That I was created to adore

The glory of my Lord

Help me lift my eyes to see

This beautiful reality

That I may not be trapped in this cycle

Pursuing this meaningless idol

Help me lift my heart to praise

And let me be amazed

That I may not be broken

For words I leave unspoken

Help me lift my heart to praise

And let me be amazed

That intellect I envision

Is nothing since Christ is risen

Help me lift my soul to thee

Grasp true reality

Mere mortal accolade

Will from my praise fade

Help me lift my soul to thee

Grasp true reality

To use my time for you

Forsake the sins I knew

Help me lift my mind to feel

Let this be my only appeal

Be to know you ever more

And leave what I loved before

Help me lift my mind to feel

Let this be my only appeal

To fill my heart with Christ

Knowing deeply He shall suffice
