All-seeing Eye

By Rob Morris

There is an eye through blackest night
A vigil ever keeps
A vision of unerring light,
O'er lowly vale, o'er giddy height,
The Eye that never sleeps.

Midst poverty and sickness lain,
The outcast lowly weeps
What marks the face convulsed with pain?
What marks the softened look again?
The Eye that never sleeps.

Above the far meridian sun
Below profoundest deeps,
Where dewy day his course begun,
Where scarlet marks his labor done
The Eye that never sleeps.

No limit bounds th' Eternal Sight
No misty cloud o'ersweeps
The depths of hell give up their light
Eternity itself is bright
The Eye that never sleeps.

Then rest we calm, though round our head
The life-storm fiercely sweeps
What fear is in the blast? what dread
In mightier Death? An Eye's o'erhead,
The Eye that never sleeps.
