Poetic Inspirations and Practical Applications for Blissful Living

The Eyes are the Lamp

Eyes are the Lamp of the Soul

The eyes are the lamp
The window to the soul
So much the eyes speak
Indeed volumes are told

There is the eye
That shines simple and true
Yes, there is the eye
That sees what few others do

There is the eye
Fixed on God’s love
Focused not on things earthly
But rather on things Above

Radiant it shines
Hope, love and joy there meet
With knowledge eternal
And with innocence sweet

These eyes see what matters
And discern falsehood from truth
These eyes know God’s power
And need no other proof

For these eyes see God
In every moment, every day
They see His Light
As they follow His Way

Happy are those eyes
Who have seen God’s Face
These eyes tell a story
Of Love, of Mercy, of Grace

May my eyes shine
And reflect Your Love pure
May Your Light gleam from them
And eternally endure

    What popped in my mind was “we are the apple of God’s eye”. That’s an amazing truth that is hard to comprehend. Thank you for reminding me.
    Have a Victorious Day!
