Full Focus

Tune: Kingsfold

('I heard the voice of Jesus say')


Do you see Him in a manger there?

In stable He did share

With cattle, lowly in their stalls

Yet He the Lord of all

The Babe of Bethlehem is He

And now good hope have we

For He the Dayspring on our sight

Has dawned and brought us light


Do you see Him walk upon earth?

He of the virgin birth

Mary, she was His mother mild

Jesus Christ He her child

And God His Father ever be

He brought salvation free

Unto all who do to Him turn

And of Him each day learn


Do you see Him upon the cross?

To so redeem our loss

The Lamb of God, for sinners slain

Enduring death and pain

Look kindly on us, Lord, we pray

Take all our sins away

'Tis solely by your blood alone

You do for us atone


Do you see Him risen again?

A Saviour for all men (mankind)

Overcame death, no more to die

Our redemption now nigh

Help us to trust, put confidence

In you and go forth hence

Enabled by your Spirit's power

To serve you every hour


May our full focus ever be

On you Lord, only see

You, and your will an ways to know

your words and deeds to show

Not distracted, nor earth-bound stay

But always watch and pray

We see you by faith now, yet sure

Shall see your face e'ermore

    Written during meditation! So you gave everybody a break from your singing; I bet you’ll get invited more often; just for the peace & quiet! Lol!

    Good rhyme though!

      Thanks Unsub. Well, written after meditation. I may have had my eyes closed at the actual time - bit tricky to write with eyes shut! lol.

        God one Orchi. I often meditate in church, at least I think closing my eyes and snoring is called meditation.
