However, as it is written: “What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived” — the things God has prepared for those who love him—
–1 Corinthians 2:9 (NIV)
No ear can hear the power of the Word;
No eye can see the beauty of His face
Until the mind has opened up and heard
And heart conceived the wonder of His grace.
In every grass and flower and growing tree,
There lives a drop of heaven pure and whole.
In every child of God like you and me,
We find His nature in our very soul.
But eyes refuse to see and ears to hear
The truth that Jesus teaches still today.
And so we walk the lonely path of fear
Until we turn and let Him lead the way.
And may we see in everything the spark
Of Christ our Lord and Savior’s loving heart.
