Oh Blessed Blindness

Oh Blessed Blindness

Bewildered, on the ground, no sight had I,

Who wielded power over life and death,

When struck down, blessed blindness sealed my eye

And drew the haughty air out from my breath.

No sleep, no food, no sight, what once was right

Within the law I saw, I lived, now dark,

Eclipsed by light of Truth that shone so bright,

My eyes, my mind, my heart could not yet mark.

And thus, I, who had led, now led by one

Through brothers who in faith walked by the Way,

Led me from darkness to Godís living Son,

That I in faith and with no fear can say:

†††† Oh blessed blindness sent by Him to me

†††† To take my sight, His spirit True to see.

About the Poet
Husband, father, grandfather, and each title is my joy. As a youth, poetry was a means to express the inexpressable. I was attracted to (and still am) the beauty and brevity of verse. All flows out from God, and like a proper prayer, can flow back.
