Every Single One

Forty pairs of little eyes
Stared into this heart of mine
A memory burned inside my soul
One that never has let go
I looked into the face of need
The least of these looked back at me
I was unprepared and overwhelmed
With little time and much to tell

I’ve seen Jesus standing all alone
I’ve seen Jesus, He was young and He was old
I’ve seen Jesus in the eyes of all His daughters and sons
Every single one

In a world away from luxury
Is where I found prosperity
Where greater love laid down His life
For the orphan and the widowed wife

I found Jesus
He’s living with the poor
I’ve found Jesus
He’s easy to ignore
I’ve found Jesus in the eyes of all His daughters and sons
Every single one

Hear Him.

And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say? Luke 6:46

But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therin, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed. James 1:25

The Hebrew word for "hear" is shama. Which is translated~to hear intelligently with an implication of attention and obedience. To obey and to be obedient are included in the meanings. So hearing isn't just hearing~hearing means taking action and obeying what you heard. Father, help us to truly hear (shama) Your instructions.
