With Veiled Eyes...




God’s thoughts are a mystery
We cannot explain
The reasoning of His perfect say
But someday in Heaven
All will be plain
When this world has vanished away

Life’s tribulation
Its pain and its grief
Are not absences of His grace
But, by these we long
For Heaven’s relief
And eternity’s resting place

The curse of sin
Covers the earth
With many a tortured woe
Redemption offers
Hope’s re-birth
In Calvary’s ceaseless flow

Man’s faith is tested
To be proven; refined
God’s love is oft misunderstood
In spite of our folly
He is faithful and kind
And above all; God is good

Our earth-dimmed vision
Cannot see the whole
We see; but only in part
Through a glass darkly
God sees man’s soul
And the deepest intent of the heart

God’s thoughts are a mystery
We cannot explain
His sacred and holy tears
But someday in Heaven
All will be plain
As the veil in our eyes disappears

 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
    neither are your ways my ways,”
declares the Lord. “As the heavens are higher than the earth,
    so are my ways higher than your ways
    and my thoughts than your thoughts.Isa. 55:8-9 NIV
