- 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,
Voices of truth Thou sendest clear;
And while the wave notes fall on my ear,
Everything false will disappear.
Tidings of mercy everywhere;
Open my heart and let me prepare
Love with Thy children thus to share.
More of Thy love in word and deed;
What shall I fear while yet Thou dost lead?
Only for light from Thee I plead.
