174. Open My Eyes, That I May See

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.

Refrain:
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 wave-notes fall on my ear,
Everything false will disappear.

Refrain:
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 everywhere;
Open my heart, and let me prepare
Love with Thy children thus to share.

Refrain:
Silently now I wait for Thee,
Ready, my God, Thy will to see,
Open my heart, illumine me,
Spirit divine!

Amen.
