Eternity

He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end.  (Ecclesiastes 3:11)

Eternity is now in view
Your rays of light make all things new
Brilliance reflected in the skies
Illuminated by new eyes

I once was lost, but now I’m found
Your constant presence all around
Discerning lately satan’s lies
Illuminated by new eyes

Walking toward Your shining city
Upon ground unseen yet steady
Kept safe by heavenly allies
Illuminated by new eyes

Eternity is now in view
Illuminated by new eyes

Ephesians 1:18-20  I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of his mighty strength, which he exerted in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms. (NIV)

Hebrews 7:25 Therefore He is able also to save to the uttermost (completely, perfectly, finally, and for all time and eternity) those who come to God through Him, since He is always living to make petition to God and intercede with Him and intervene for them. (AMP)

This form of poetry is called a Kyrielle Sonnet (French) which has 14 lines with 8 syllables each.  The last line of each stanza repeats in the 3 rhyming quatrains.  The poem ends with a non-rhyming couplet which is made up of the first and last sentence of the poem.
