“The Eyes of the Lord”

April 18, 2014

“The Wheels on the Bus” is a fun traditional song for young kids to sing. The song uses only two basic guitar chords (G and D) and has an easy to learn melody, making it another good song for any beginning guitarist to use to perfect his playing the chords and the melody notes in treble clef.

Sung to the same tune, my new song “The Eyes of the Lord”1 teaches young children solid biblical truth about the universal reality that the Lord sees everything and everyone all the time everywhere (2 Chron. 16:9 Prov. 15:3; Zech. 4:10; Heb. 4:13). Moreover, He examines all that is done (Ps. 11:4; Prov. 5:21), and His gaze is on the just in a special way to favor them (Ps. 34:15; 1 Pet. 3:12).

The Eyes of the Lord

1. The eyes of the Lord run to and fro,
to and fro, to and fro,
the eyes of the Lord run to and fro,
all through the earth.

2. The eyes of the Lord see all that’s done,
all that’s done, all that’s done,
the eyes of the Lord see all that’s done,
all through the earth.

3. The eyes of the Lord try ev’ryone,
ev’ryone, ev’ryone,
the eyes of the Lord try ev’ryone,
all through the earth.

4. The eyes of the Lord are on the just,
on the just, on the just,
the eyes of the Lord are on the just,
all through the earth.
