“For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth to show Himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward Him. . .”
II Chronicles 16:9a
God’s restless eyes are looking today
For those whose long to know Him—
Those who hunger and thirst for His touch
And be freed from sin and all whims.
He already knows everything about you—
Your thoughts and secret sins;
Yet, still He looks and longs to freely give
His peace and joy within.
Although the world seems to be growing more evil
With every passing day,
The Lord of Hosts is still looking for those
Who’ll let Him have His Way.
He longs to show how much He cares
And the changes He can make;
All we must do is yield to Him
And of our sins forsake.
This One Whose Eye is on the sparrow
Is the One in Whom Noah saw Grace;
And, we like him, will see this, too,
If we’ll but yield to His tender embrace.
Yes, the eyes of the Lord run to and fro
Across the face of this earth
To find anyone whose heart will rise up to Him
And will find in Him their worth.
Oh surrender to Him now, all you who hear
That the Savior is looking for you;
Surrender your life into His loving care
By letting Him be Lord in all you think, say and do.
It only takes one look into His eyes
To change your heart within;
Simply open up your life to Him right now
And His new life in you will surely begin.
