From where they sit, what do they see?
Can they catch a glimpse of Him in me?
Does my talk say one thing, but my walk another?
Do they long for Him, or ask "Why bother?"
Is my faith in Christ doing ought for them?
Does my light shine bright, or is it only dim?
Am I salt at all to those searching souls?
Or is the flavor lost, which once was bold?
From where they sit, do they care to hear
Of the One who longs to draw them near?
Is watching me their gain, or loss?
Do they see real faith, or only gloss?

Let your light so shine before men,that they
may see your good works and glorify your
Father in heaven. (Matthew 5:16)
