The Things I See in You


I see in you what I am looking for
A faith convinced that God is there
He turns His ear to every whispered prayer
And you - his name and nature bear

I see in you what I am looking for
A faith that fills your heart with song
To celebrate that you to Him belong
And in your weakness He is strong

I see in you what I am looking for
A faith that laughs at trying days
That thumbs the nose at come-what-mays
And in the battle always, always stays

I see in you what I am looking for
A faith that anchors in the storm
That sings for joy amid the locust swarm
And surrenders to God’s Spirit to transform

I see in you what I am looking for
A faith that lays before God’s mighty throne
All crowns and works of great renown
Content to ever be the Saviour’s own

I see in you what I am looking for
In all your scenes that play across life’s stage
The narrative God writes upon the page
With life in light and shadow you engage
