I want to dream,
I want to hope,
I want to thrive,
I want to love.

I want to capture with my eyes everything I can.
I want to dance in heav'n above and look upon His face.
I want to sing with choirs of angels and hear songs resonate.
I want to be,
I want to see.

I want to live,
I want to know,
I want to trust,
I want to hold.

I want to capture with my eyes the splendor of God's work.
I want to feel my racing heart when I behold His face.
I want to tremble as I reach to grasp His waiting hand.
I want to be,
I want to see.

I want to fly,
I want to touch,
I want to dance,
I want to run.

I want to capture with my eyes every detail God has made.
I want to spin on clouds of gold and gaze to starry skies.
I want to wrap my arms around my Savior, King of Love.
I want to be,
I want to see.

I want to sing,
I want to feel,
I want to leap,
I want to soar.

I want to capture with my eyes each sunrise God performs.
I want to lose myself within the majesty of night.
I want to dream of what's to come and how it all will seem.
I want to be,
I want to see.

I want to go,
I want to rest,
I want to sleep,
I want to drift.

I want to capture with my eyes the fullness of His grace.
I want to feel His light surround me and fall in His embrace.
I want to close my eyes forever to see what lies beyond.
I want to be,
I want to see.

Amen is the only thing I could think of that would do this wonderful piece justice.

This was beyond gorgeous and brought tears to my eyes! Maybe I'm just sappy today, but I loved every line of this.
