Blind man helped me see
May 7, 2015
A blind man tapping on the sidewalk as he navigates down the street
A picture of the roadway through his hands and feet
He taps out a scene as he quickly glides ahead
Thinking of his confidence with his erect head
Why can’t I have that motivation to see the things unseen?
And walk in mere shadows with enthusiasm so keen
Being able to see and touch and feel and taste
And yet timid to walk through life
A fear that is a waste
A blind man tapping on the sidewalk
A picture of love and hope
And through all life’s difficulties
We too can find ways to cope
To see the things unseen and to tap into eternal life
The word of the Lord, to avoid the great inferno of his might
Blessed are those that believe as scripture unfolds before our very eyes
And all the wisdom of the Lord for us to memorize.
As a blind man walks by faith while he taps down the street
Its faith in Christ, the knowing to be saved is all so sweet
Its faith that can move mountains the obstacles within
The blessed hope, the glorious appearing, our focus to keep us from sin.
Hope is not wishful thinking of a future, past our prime
It is divine promises by faith alone in our creator’s time
So I see the blind man how he sees things unseen
Only an illustration, of what salvation can truly mean.
A blind man taping on the sidewalk as he taps down the street
The light of the world shines before us, the gift of eternal life at our feet
Let’s accept we are blind as he guides us along
To see by faith alone in his hand we are strong
