||Shut Our Eyes
It's hard to look at the sun,
It's more so to look upon the One
Who with His very hands made it shine
And pleased the Father: "This Son of mine."
Had He not appeared in the flesh
None could stand the sight of Him,
We all would have to shut our eyes
For in Holy, Holy, Holy, there is no sin.
*Letter of Barnabas
Codex of Sinaiticus, A.D. 120
