Eternal Things

NO longer do I look upon

Those things which do appear

They have become obscure to me;

As God does draw me near.

For eternal things I gaze upon

I see them more each day

That eternal weight of glory

And the revealing of the way.

The things which are eternal

Encourage me so I can cope;

Things like love, joy and peace

And the sure and certain hope.

Now, if I hope for what I see

I shall find no profit fair

But in the hope which is of faith

I have assurance there!

So that on the things that I can't see

I place my concentration,

Then God reveals his will to me

By giving revelation.

For that which is invisible

I see clearer each day;

Hope has become my substance

As faith's evidence lights the way.

2 Corinthians 4:18
