Eyes on Eternity

Download MP3

“Therefore we do not give up. Even though our outer person is being destroyed, our inner person is being renewed day by day. For our momentary light affliction is producing for us an absolutely incomparable eternal weight of glory. So we do not focus on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.” 2 Corinthians 4:16–18 CSB

Verse 1
You died the death that I deserve
Now we are living by Your word
In faith we came alive
Outer flesh wasting away
The inner self renewed each day
It’s Christ who lives in me
It’s Christ who lives in me

Give us eyes for what’s unseen
Forever loving you our King
We believe so we speak (in your name)
Grace extends to tell Your story
Praises rise all to Your glory
Focus our eyes to see (more of You)
Focus our eyes to see (eternity)

Verse 2
Alive in You we won’t give up
Eyes fixed on Jesus who took the cup
He died for me in love
Redeeming God You use it all
Reversing the curse of our great fall
O’ the coming weight of eternal glory
O’ the coming weight of eternal glory

Afflicted, not crushed
Perplexed, not despairing
Persecuted, not abandoned
Struck down, not destroyed
Shining light out of darkness
You keep shining light out of our darkness
