Our Eyes Look to the Lord Our God


My God I lift my eyes to see you
Sitting on your mighty throne in the splendor of heaven
As your people, we look to you o Lord
Your faithful people who look to you o God
Have mercy on your people who believe in you and love you
For we face hard times
We are weak and our souls need your eternal peace to fill our lives

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I wrote this poem inspired by Psalms 123. I wrote this poem on the 04 January 2014 on the border of Northern Israel. Looking back on 2013 and events in the middle east, I was moved to read the Book of Psalms. This poem is dedicated to people who believe in God even in the face of terror, hunger, and poverty.

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
