"Restore My Vision"

Restore My Vision

Let there be a gleam in my eye again, O Lord,
For my sight is growing dim.
All around me lacks glory,
The world is dull and grey.
Restore my vision, open my eyes,
Keep me from the kingdom of the blind.
Let me not be among the walking dead.
Touch my heart, that it may be warm 
To the wonders and beauty of the day.
Be at one with me, O mighty Lord,
Make this the place of my resurrection,
A place of new vision and new hope.
Let not the evil ones prevail, O Lord.
Let no one rejoice because I am down.

Lord I am shattered to the roots,
I have lost all identity and purpose.
Yet somewhere within is a light,
For you are at the centre of my life:
You are in the heart of the world.
Lord, I trust your light and love.
When this heaviness is gone,
Let my heart rejoice again in you,
And sing of your mercy and love.
Sheila Bridge
