Blind to Our Lord – v2

our older brothers
the sons of Jacob, of Israel,
our Jewish brethren
their hearts hardened
unable to believe Your Word
not able to see Jesus
standing before them
blind to our Lord

our older sisters
the children of Rachel
unable to hear Your call
to believe the signs before them
not believing the disciples
those who would follow
not seeing Christ
blind to our Lord

may their eyes be opened
all of Israel’s children
all of the children of Abraham
each sister, each brother
may they see our Savior
their hearts filled with blessings
with God’s love to share
that they now see Christ
