The light in your face...

 

Why do I turn my eyes away?

Is it too much, this light in your face?

I'm too far away from most of you.

I'm too far behind

to say, "Me too."

 

Why do I turn my eyes away?

What makes us join in this journey?

So, since I am here and so are we,

I'll tell you, I only think purely.

 

My Savior was there to pull me out

when I was almost drowning.

I'm humbled at last, perhaps too much.

And why is the King not crowning?

 

Our Savior was humble in his own way.

We cannot ask him why.

But the needs of the masses stand in awe,

as their praises reach to the sky.
