166. Open My Eyes, That I May See

English:
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 senders 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!

4 Open my mind, that I may read
More of thy love in word and deed;
What shall I fear while yet thou dost lead?
Only the light from thee I plead.

Refrain:
Silently now I wait for thee,
Ready, my God, thy will to see;
Open my mind, illumine me,
Spirit divine!

Spanish:
1 Abre mis ojos a la luz,
Tu rostro quiero ver, Jesús;
Pon en mi corazón tu bondad,
Y dame pas y santidad,

Refrain:
Humildemente acudo a ti.
Porque tu tierna voz olí;
Mi guía sé, Espíritu
Consolador.

2 Abremi oido a tu verdad,
Yo quiero oir con claridad;
Ballas palabras de dulce a mor,
¡Oh mi bendito Salvador!

Refrain:
Consagro a ti mi frágil ser,
Tu voluntad yo quiero hacer.
Ven a mi ser, Espíritu
Consolador.

3 Abre mis labios para hablar,
Y a todo el mundo proclamar
Que tú viniste a rescatar
Al más perdido pecador.

Refrain:
La mies es mucha, ¡oh, Señor!
Obreros faltan de valor;
Heme aquí, Espíritu
Consolador.

4 Abre mi mente para ver
Más de tu amor y gran poder;
Dame tu gracia para triunfar,
Y hazme en la lucha vencedor.

Refrain:
Sé tú mi escondedero fiel,
Y aumenta mi valor y fe;
Mi mano ten, Espíritu
Consolador.
