I Only Have Eyes For You
My love must be a kind of blind love
I can't see anyone but you
Are the stars out tonight?
I don't know if it's cloudy or bright
I only have eyes for you, dear
The moon may be high
But I can't see a thing in the sky
I only have eyes for you
I don't know if we're in a garden
Or on a crowded avenue
You are here and so am I
Maybe millions of people go by
But they all disappear from view
And I only have eyes for you
- Al Dubin, 1934 A.D.
Read about this tune's journey from inception to popularity.
This song incites a particular emotion in me. It may be the recording's atmosphere, the singing, or the lyrics, or all of it. Perhaps the imagery that comes to mind. I love my wife dearly, but she doesn't come to mind when hearing this song.
I will praise you, Lord, with all my heart; before the “gods” I will sing your praise.
I will bow down toward your holy temple and will praise your Name for your unfailing love and your faithfulness, for you have so exalted your solemn decree that it surpasses your fame.
When I called, you answered me; you greatly emboldened me.
May all the kings of the earth praise you, Lord, when they hear what you have decreed.
May they sing of the ways of the Lord, for the glory of the Lord is great.
- Psalm 138: 1-5
I love you, Lord, my strength.
The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
- Psalm 18: 1-2
Yeshua answered, “It is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God and serve Him only.’”
- Luke 4: 8
