Open my eyes that I may see

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!
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.
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.
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.

My "Morning with Jesus" devotion referenced this hymn. I immediately began singing the song from memory. I have not heard the song in at least 35 years! A wonderful reminder of the small country church I grew up in and sang hymns like this every week. I'm thankful for this reminder and this site with the piano music and lyrics - Praise be to God!


Columbus, OH, United States

This hymn came to me while doing a study on Deborah. As I was trying to be still, and let God show me his will for my life, these words came to mind. I had to pause and sing it out loud. I don’t want to be blind, deaf or unaware of His calling for my life.

Open my eyes Lord.


It really touched me


Clermont, FL, United States

I was just thinking of the condition of our country after seeing a statement by the UK's new PM..."fed up with woke policing and plans to complete 180." This song came to my mind after not hearing it for decades.

Open our eyes Lord... worldwide and may we turn back to You and Your ways.

I went to bed last night, resolute. I woke up with this in my head just a while ago. I couldn't remember what it was initially. Our God is in control. Ex 14. Rev 17:14. 2 Kings 6:16. Be strong and of good courage. Look UP. He is coming. 🌹

I was praying as I was preparing to do my bible study and the first words of this hymn came into my mind. I looked it up and found this website and sang the song with the piano. It expressed my wishes so well. I had not thought of this song in many years. Very thankful God brought it to mind..


Paradise, CA, United States

Yesterday I woke up with difficult decisions to make. This hymn suddenly came into my mind. I then looked it up in my hymnal and found the words gave me peace and a sense of direction. I feel the Lord spoke through this hymn to give me the direction that God wants me to go.
