#163: Open My Eyes, That I May See

Standard

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

Open my eyes, that I may see Glimpses of truth Thou hast for me;

Place in my hands the wonderful key That shall unclasp and set me free.

Silently now I wait for Thee, Ready, my God, Thy will to see;

Open my eyes — illumine me, Spirit divine!

2

Open my ears, that I may hear Voices of truth Thou sendest clear;

And while the wavenotes fall on my ear, Ev’ry thing false  will disappear.

Silently now I wait for Thee, Ready, my God, Thy will to see;

Open my ears — illumine me, Spirit divine!

3

Open my mouth, and let me bear Gladly the warm truth ev’ry where;

Open my heart and let me prepare Love with Thy children thus to share;

Silently now I wait for Thee, Ready, my God, Thy will to see;

Open my heart — illumine me, Spirit divine!
