The Seeing Eye
By Reginald Heber
THERE is an eye that never sleeps
  Beneath the wing of night;
There is an ear that never shuts
  When sink the beams of sight;
There is an arm that never tires        5
  When human strength gives way;
There is a love that never fails
  When earthly loves decay.
That eye is fix’d on seraph throngs,
That ear is filled with angels’ songs,        10
That arm upholds the worlds on high,
That Love is throned beyond the sky.
