Be thou my vision
When I cannot see,
The plan for the mission
That You have for me.

Open my eyes Lord,
So I can see,
The love outpoured
Youíve given to me.

When I survey
The wondrous cross,
What more can I say?
Itís my gain, Your loss.

You live! You live!
Youíve conquered death,
My thanks I give
With all my breath.

Redeemed by the lamb
No blemish too red,
Just as I am
For me You bled.

My sight You give,
My ears, my voice,
For You Iíll live,
I have no choice.

I see the beauty
Of the earth,
It is my duty
To give You Your worth.

Search me oh God,
And know my heart,
My sin, oh God,
Is black and dark.

You have cleansed me
This I know,
This heart in me
Is whiter than snow.

My eyes on Jesus,
He knows the way,
Iíll walk with Jesus
All of my days.

Very nice words of praise to God. I started to sing to it at first. Very melodic rythm.

Praise God for his love for us. Keep writing.

I love reading entries that are so honest and pure. I can tell you mean each word/phrase you write. That is a gift. Your writing is real and you minister your point well. Excellent job. You've blessed me and encouraged me this morning. Thank you. God bless.

Lovely poem. I especially liked the first verse.
Rita Garcia08/14/06
Beautiful, touching and brought tears to my eyes! Thank you for sharing this vision of praise and worship!

Yes, Allison, I agree that this poem in its sweet simplicity is very beautiful. You've conveyed a peace and purity of heart that is absolutely lovely. Just refine the rhythm a little bit on a few lines, and you'll have a sparkling gem here. I'm really blessed by this poem.

This sparkles with praise most glorious! Thank you for being bold enough to go with your heart for this entry! I agree a few lines need tweaked as far as the rhythm goes, but other than that, it's exquisite praise to the One Most Worthy! :)

I like the way you used some almost familiar lines from songs and wove them into something new and fresh. Sing song melodic - wonder what the tune is? Nicely done. I like this.
Joanne Sher 08/15/06
Lovely message - and, like others, I found myself "singing" this. (to the tune of, surprise surprise, "Be Thou My Vision" - which actually worked for part of it!)For your first poetry submission, I would say this is pretty awesome!
Amy Michelle Wiley 08/15/06
I really like this! I love how you used the familiar hymns. Good job.
