Let Me Not Lose Sight of Jesus

Bougereau | Psyche | 1892
Have you ever seen the color purple painted so beautiful!

LET ME NOT LOSE SIGHT OF JESUS

Do you know him, does he know you
does he see himself in my heart
search me through and through
look in all the corners of my heart

is there anyone in the universe
with so many good points
so peculiar and unique
hang his portrait in every boy

I’m doing my best
for him, I’ll leave the rest
like a blind man
that mighty hand I hold

a center my life finds
focused on his face
sitting at his feet
is the highest place

involved in all my dirt
more than eager to use
his best to reach my worst
let me not lose sight of Jesus

I’m doing my best
for him, I’ll leave the rest
like a blind man
that mighty hand I hold

the highest place is gone
take the lead and lead me on
