Beloved, I thought I knew the way home.
I thought a lot of things back then.
This blindness is the best thing that has ever happened to me!
All my suppositions were due to worldly sight.
I got around quite well, dodging this and heading for that.
Carnal life is exactly like a crooked cow path,
going from one promising tuft of grass to the next.
You once said that if my right eye offended me,
pluck it out.[i]
My whole body offended me!
You picked me out of the herd.
I did not noticed them scatter; my head was down.
It would not have mattered had I ran.
I was Yours.
I am dead to the world now.[ii]
You lead me in ways I do not know.
You make the crooked way straight.[iii]
I follow blindly, for You will not lead me astray
because You guide me in the path of righteousness.[iv]
It is only important that You know the way Home.
The sight You give is not for this place.
I only have eyes for You.
