"Unto Thee I lift up mines eyes... as the eyes of servants look unto the hand of their masters... Our soul is exceedingly filled with the scorning of those that are at ease" (Psalm 123:1-4). "The hearing ear, and the seeing eye, the Lord hath made even both of them" (Proverbs 20:12).
We hear the scorning everyday
Of those who are at ease,
But God hears every word they say,
And all their folly sees.
For everything is crystal clear
To Him who made our eyes,
And He who made the hearing ear
Can hear their careless lies.
Should scorning fill us to the brim
With fretting and frustration,
Or turn our eyes again to Him
Who purchased our salvation?
We ought to stand for what is true,
Yet never should lose sight,
That scorners need salvation too;
They do not need our spite!
Knowing that it does not please
Our Lord to see one perish,
We ought to pray for those at ease
As precious souls to cherish.
We lift our eyes to You, O Lord,
As servants You have sent
To tell the lost to turn toward
Our Savior and repent.
