He Will See Me


1 Samuel 16:6-8
New Living Translation (NLT)

6 When they arrived, Samuel took one look at Eliab and thought, “Surely this is the Lord’s anointed!”

7 But the Lord said to Samuel, “Don’t judge by his appearance or height, for I have rejected him. The Lord doesn’t see things the way you see them. People judge by outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”

8 Then Jesse told his son Abinadab to step forward and walk in front of Samuel. But Samuel said, “This is not the one the Lord has chosen.”

Double Exposure

To some it seems I hung the moon,
To them I can do no wrong,
While others think me such a “stinker”
It’s to the devil I must belong,

And in the middle there are those
Who really could care less,
They can take or leave me in a moment
Because to them I neither sicken nor impress,

So take me as you see me,
I’m really neither of the extremes,
I’m just a simple, country boy
Or at least that’s how it seems,

Oh yeah, I have my good days
But my chances to not sin are slim,
There’s only one way I get by
And that’s to depend on only him,

So it really doesn’t matter
How the world perceives me to be,
One day I’ll stand before the Lord
And he’ll see the one and only me.
