The Lord Looks Down From Heaven

By J. Randal Matheny

The Lord looks down from heaven on our race,
In search of someone wise to seek his face;
But who will praise his name and do his will,
To cease from fools, and find in God his fill?

Now who can worship in his holy house?
He whose lips refuse to gossip or grouse,
The blameless, righteous life, all sin removed,
Will stand forever, a soul by God approved.

Be wise, then, men and women on earth below,
The Lord invites us come, this path we know;
In his communion of love he makes us whole,
In him, our joy, our crown, our glorious soul.
