What Eyes Can See?

What eyes can see?
What ears can hear?
Who can imagine all the
Good God has for us?

No eyes can see,
No ears can hear,
No one can imagine all the
Good God has for us.

About This Song:

“What Eyes Can See?”
seems almost too simple to call a song rather than just a chorus. And perhaps it is.

But Isaiah 64:4 inspired it, and that gives it a lot of validity.

The Good News Translation says,

No one has ever seen or heard of a God like you, who does such deeds for those who put their hope in him.

and the Contemporary English Version says,

You are the only God ever seen or heard of who works miracles for his followers.

I like what The Message says:

Since before time began no one has ever imagined, no ear heard, no eye seen, a God like you who works for those who wait for him.

I honestly have no idea what translation I adopted my wording from, but the verse–and consequently my song–says something I believe in quite strongly.

God is unlimited in the perfect gifts He desires to give His children. If I can’t begin to comprehend the vastness of His attributes, how can I pretend to imagine all He’s able to do for each and every one of us?

I can’t even explain why He chose to spare my life when I was in the eighth grade, in a coma with acute viral encephalitis. But He did. He could have left me in a vegetative state when He brought me out of it, but He didn’t. I’m as normal as I could ever hope to be.

Has He done something special in your life–something inexplicably wonderful? Could you have imagined that He would ever do something like that? How about leaving a comment?

Free lead sheets (lyrics, tune, and chords) are available for many of my songs. Click on the Lead Sheets tab at the top of this page to see whether one is available for this song.

Look for me again next Wednesday. Better still, subscribe to receive these weekly posts by email.

Best regards,
