NO longer do I look upon
Those things which do appear
They have become obscure to me;
As God does draw me near.
For eternal things I gaze upon
I see them more each day
That eternal weight of glory
And the revealing of the way.
The things which are eternal
Encourage me so I can cope;
Things like love, joy and peace
And the sure and certain hope.
Now, if I hope for what I see
I shall find no profit fair
But in the hope which is of faith
I have assurance there!
So that on the things that I can't see
I place my concentration,
Then God reveals his will to me
By giving revelation.

For that which is invisible
I see clearer each day;
Hope has become my substance
As faith's evidence lights the way.

2 Corinthians 4:18
