I Cannot Hear

By Ted Camp – 1971

Now in this life I cannot hear,

One day I will, for Jesus cares.

I cannot hear the birds that sing,

I cannot hear the bells that ring.

I’ve never heard a baby cry,

Or heard the thunder in the sky.

Sometimes I’m lonely and I cry.

I have to brush the tears from my eye.

For in this life I cannot hear,

But one day I will, for Jesus cares.

I thank my God that He saved me.

I may be deaf but I’ve been made free.

I have God’s word in Heaven I’ll be,

With Him for all eternity.

There I will praise the Lord and sing,

There I will hear the bells that ring.

My deafness gone forever more,

I’ll sing with Him, my dear Lord.

I’ll sing with angels and happy be,

With Christ my Lord through eternity.

For in this life I cannot hear,

One day I will, for Jesus Cares!

Written for our foster deaf daughter.
She requested I write a poem about the Deaf.
