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 wave notes fall on my ear,
    Everything false will disappear.
  3. Open my mouth and let me bear
    Tidings of mercy everywhere;
    Open my heart and let me prepare
    Love with Thy children thus to share.
  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 for light from Thee I plead.
