There is an eye that never sleeps

CGS No.: 

Verse 1
There is an eye that never sleeps
Beneath the wing of night;
There is an ear that never shuts
When sinks the beams of light.

Verse 2
There is an arm that never tires
When human strength gives way;
There is a love that never fails
When earthly loves decay.

Verse 3
That eye is fix'd on seraph throngs;
That arm upholds the sky;
That ear is fill'd with angels' songs;
That love is throned on high.

Verse 4
But there's a power, which man can wield,
When mortal aid is vain,
That eye, that arm, that love to reach,
That listening ear to gain.

Verse 5
That power is prayer, which soars on high,
Through Jesus, to the throne,
And moves the hand, which moves the world,
To bring salvation down.

Verse 6
Oh, Thou whose mercy knows no end,
Whose love can never cease,
Grant that we have both faith and love,
So, we may always pray.
