1 Dear Saviour, all I think or do
Thine eye can see;
My many wants, my trials too,
Thine eye can see;
Where'er I dwell it matters not,
My home a palace or a cot,
Thank God! whatever be my lot,
Thine eye can see.

Thine eye can see,
Thine eye can see;
Thank God! whatever be my lot,
Thine eye can see.

2 Do clouds obscure my morning sun?
Thine eye can see;
Do friends forsake me one by one?
Thine eye can see;
Have I no home, no resting place?
Still opened are thine arms of grace,
The tear of sorrow on my face
Thine eye can see. [Refrain]

3 When evening shadows o'er me creep,
Thine eye can see;
When on my pillow calm I sleep,
Thine eye can see;
I thank thee for thy watchful care,
How sweet thy tender love to share,
And know that every grief I bear
Thine eye can see. [Refrain]

4 If I will serve thee day by day,
Thine eye can see;
If from thy pleasant paths I stray,
Thine eye can see;
Oh, take my heart, my will subdue,
And may I ever keep in view,
That all I think and all I do
Thine eye can see. [Refrain]
