Matt Papa's 5 Favorite Keith Green Songs

My Eyes are dry

This song makes the list for me because it cracks all the modern molds and stereotypes of a worship song.  This song bleeds.  It says I’m not OK.  The song is a on the nose, plain and simple, dirt-in the fingernails, confessional.  Which is so rare today. Honesty is so rare but it is one of the gifts Keith gave us in his art.

My eyes are dry
My faith is old
My heart is hard
My prayers are cold
And I know how I ought to be
Alive to You and dead to me

But what can be done
For an old heart like mine
Soften it up
With oil and wine
The oil is You, Your Spirit of love
Please wash me anew
With the wine of Your Blood

Lyrics to "My Eyes Are Dry" by Keith Green

My eyes are dry
My faith is old
My heart is hard
My prayers are cold
And I know how I ought to be
Alive to You and dead to me

But what can be done
For an old heart like mine
Soften it up
With oil and wine
The oil is You, Your Spirit of love
Please wash me anew
With the wine of Your Blood
