Crystal Blue

Crystal blue, crystal blue
Are the precious pools I gaze into
To see reflected in their glance
The soul of a child who longs to dance.

And when I look I think I see
Glistening hope looking back at me
A spark of courage flashing bright
Shining with crystal blazing light.

But what’s behind those crystal eyes-
Behind this heart that God made wise?
I pray I might have strength to dare
To hope to see Christ’s healing there!

Crystal blue, crystal blue
These eyes that hold me in their view
What mysteries beyond them lie?
For I have never seen them cry.

They speak to me of bravery
And compassion rises up in me
They seem to seek to trust e’re long
To find a refuge and a home.

Crystal blue, crystal clue
Eyes of this child show me what is true
So the lines of your Spirit we can read
And we can learn to meet your need.
