Spiritual Bi-Focals

Both near and far, Lord help me see Thy kingdom as proposed by thee. Nor let my eyes, immersed in tears, Or sorrow or in sodden fears, Be narrowed to a few folk here, Forgetting heathen not so near. Nor let me get far-sighted, Lord, Forgetting that thy blessed Word Is for the heathen right next door, As well as for far Africa’s shore. Give me bi-focals, Lord, to see In all of life thy will for me.
