The eye, within its shell

So valued that no one will sell

If lost and shut forevermore

It’s like living in an upper hell


If lost and shut forevermore

It’s like a sea without a shore

No matter how you turn to swim

You’ll ask yourself whatever for


Eyes can see and touch and talk

They travel even and they walk

They take you back through many years

And they let you see future folk


Pictures form on their screen

So real and clear they are seen

They touch your soul and give you joy

And make you tingle or serene


God in heaven preserve my eyes

In them my love for you lies

Keep them safe and make me see

What they don’t to become wise
