If I Could See As God Sees

If I could see as God sees,
I would understand the reasons
For the disappointing failures
Of the heroes of the faith,
Like King David, mighty warrior,
Who stooped so low to sin,
And Peter, Christís apostle,
Who denied that he knew Him.

If I could see as God sees,
I would realize the answers
For all the ďwhyísĒ Iíve wondered
At the sorrows of the world:
Why the righteous people suffer,
And the evil people thrive,
And some profane the law of God
As long as theyíre alive.

If I could see as God sees,
I would weep for manís condition:
For the people of His chosen race
Who disclaim His only Son,
For all the lost souls in the world
Who cannot see the light,
For the poor and brokenheartedís
Cry of sorrow through the night.

If I could see as God sees,
I would love just like He does
Both the followers of Jesus
And the folks in Satanís grip.
Oh, let me grasp Your vision, Lord,
With love for everyone,
To remember that although man sins,
Our image is Your own.

Very good; each stanza with its own well-articulated theme, and a consistent structure throughout.

Makes alot of sense! Food for thought and nicely done.

"If I could see as God sees..." Could there be a more important vivion? Nice work!

It looks as if you put hard work into this. I enjoyed it very much. I also like how hard you worked to keep it in line with the theme. (Not just a passing glance but a full work on vision.)

Nicely done. Made me stop and think. :)

This is beautiful. And such a good message. I hope you did more with this from here.
