Hearts cannot Hide

"The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God... There is none that doeth good, no, not one" (Psalm 14:2,3).  "The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good… Hell and destruction are before the LORD: how much more then the hearts of the children of men?" (Proverbs 15:3,11).  "He will… gather His wheat into the garner; but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire" (Matthew 3:12). 

The hearts of men can never hide
From God who looks down from His throne. 
He searches every heart inside,
And all our sins are fully known. 

His eyes are viewing every place,
Beholding bad and good as well. 
How great our need is of His grace
To save us from eternal hell!   

Our hearts are searched by God above,
And thus He'll make a separation
Between the souls that spurned His love
And those receiving His salvation. 

O Lord, we know our heart's desire
Cannot be hidden from Your sight,
So draw us upward, ever higher,  
To love You with our utmost might.
