Voice and Vision

"Thou art the God that doest wonders: Thou hast declared Thy strength among the people… and Thy footsteps are not known" (Psalm 77:14,19).  "Where there is no vision, the people perish" (Proverbs 29:18).  "Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men… God… hath reconciled us to Himself… and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation… We are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God" (2 Corinthians 5:11,20). 

The Lord our God displays His wonders,
And His redemption has been shown.
His voice was heard with heaven's thunders,
And yet His footsteps are not known. 

How blind are those who cannot see
The footsteps of our God and Savior,
Who led His people faithfully
And rescued them with saving favor! 

If people perish without vision,
It is because they've made the choice
That blinds them by their own decision
To not obey the Savior's voice.

Your voice, Lord, that the lost ignores,
And vision that the blind refuse,
We heed as Your ambassadors
To show the grace that they may choose.
