New Eyes

God (Inspired by)

Oh Lord, 

please take away 

these lustful eyes.


Never once did 

they look away 

from temptation.


I believed the lie 

that I was too broken to save.


I thought I was

beyond your grace.


But your grace reaches

even the darkness places.


You healed the lame,

restored vision to the blind.


You are in the business

of forming miracles.


Oh that you would

touch my face

like you did in the gospels.


Oh that you would remove

this distorted vision

and grant me new eyes.
