Singleness of Eye.  Prov. 4. 25;  Matt. 6. 21-23

J. Berridge                    S.M.

1
To Canaan art thou bound?
Walk on in Jesus’ might;
But mark, the way is holy ground,
And needs a heart upright.

2
Make Jesus all thy peace,
And make him all thy arm;
Rely alone upon his grace,
To guard from every harm.

3
[To Jesus some will pray,
Yet not with single eye;
They turn their eyes another way,
Some creature-help to spy.

4
In darkness such are held;
And bound in legal fear,
A double eye is in the child,
The heart is not sincere.

5
Such find no gospel rest,
But into bondage fall,
The Lord will not uphold thy breast,
Till he is all in all.]

6
Lord, give me single sight,
And make it strong and clear,
So will my soul be full of light,
And feel the Saviour near.
