Looking at His Lovingkindness

"Thy lovingkindness is before mine eyes: and I have walked in Thy truth" (Psalm 26:3).  "A Friend loveth at all times, and a Brother is born for adversity" (Proverbs 17:17).  "Call unto Me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not" (Jeremiah 33:3).  "He shall come to be glorified in His saints, and to be admired in all them that believe… that the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and ye in Him, according to the grace of our God" (2 Thessalonians 1:10,12).   

The lovingkindness of our Lord
Has been displayed before our eyes. 
His faithfulness has been explored,
Revealing love that never dies. 

He saw our daunting list of crimes
Demanding wrath eternally,
Yet still He loved us at all times
And bore for us sin's penalty. 

We see these great and mighty things
Of grace that God extends to all.    
The beauty of the King of kings
Is shown to those who on Him call.

Lord, we were once beset with blindness,
But You have given to us sight.  
Now looking at Your lovingkindness,
We worship You with great delight!
