“So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal…” 2 Corinthians 4:18


Little child,

Look up now at me,

Fix your sweet eyes

On eternity,


Let not the trials

On your heart weigh,

Let not the challenges

Darken your day,


Let not your song

Drown in tears,

Let not your hope

Dwindle in fears.


No, little one,

Have faith, be strong,

Remember with Me

You forever belong.


Surely I embrace

With love deep and true,

Surely I give

Only goodness to you.


So accept all things

As from My grace,

Choose to feel My love,

To see My face,


To hear My song

Ringing ever clear,

To experience My presence

Always near,


To savor My comfort

When all is awry,

To smile as I wipe

Every tear you cry.


My little one,

Bright is every day

When you cling to Me

On this Heaven-bound way,


So keep your sweet eyes

Fixed on eternity…

Yes, My precious one,

Keep your eyes on Me!
