Day after day, they just walked by,
Never hearing the blind man’s cry.
Until one day, when Jesus came,
Took his sorrow, and healed his pain.
Opened his eyes, that he might see,
Behold the one who’d set him free.
That day . . .


It takes an ear to hear a heart,
And know the cry life’s pains impart.
It takes a heart to love a man,
Take his burdens, help him understand
The Way . . .


There was a boy, named Jeremy,
So full of joy, the world could see.
A great big smile; a helping hand,
Trying so hard to be a man.
But in his heart, a place of pain,
A lonely place, where darkness reigned.


It takes an ear to hear a heart,
And know the cry life’s pains impart.
It takes a heart to love a boy,
Take his sorrows, and share Christ’s joy
With him . . .


He thanked his friends, few as they were,
But as for love, didn’t see a star.
Could I have been that star for him,
If I had seen the pain within?
Said he wanted to be loved, not known,
So he took a gun, and he died, alone.


It takes an ear to hear a heart,
And know the cry life’s pains impart.
It takes a heart to love someone
Take his sorrow, and share Christ’s love
With him . . .


Too many hearts silently cry,
Waiting for love, before they die.
Lord, please give me Your eyes to see
The hurting ones, all around me;
Your ears to hear their heart-felt cries,
Your love to see them with Your eyes
This day . . .


It takes Your ear to hear a heart,
And know the cry life’s pains impart.
It takes Your heart to love a man,
Take his burdens, help him understand
Your way.


Please Lord let me
Never again
Fail to see
Another
Jeremy . . .
