the world within me
Author: Ella

Chapter 131
Lift my eyes

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
