Make me a man of light with my eyes set on Thee

1
Make me a man of light with my eyes set on Thee,
Thy rays of light divine—penetrate, enlighten me;
To see, to know the heavn’ly things,
To sense, to touch reality,
Thy Spirit, Lord, convey to me,
The depths of God my heart would see!
2
Remove the many veils that are now cov’ring me,
My heart I turn, O Lord—Spirit come and set me free!
The bondages and limits break,
That deeper mingling Thou would’st make;
Oh, may Thy life grow more today
Until Thy life fills all my ways.
3
When to Thy word I come, help me to contact Thee,
Be present, dear and fresh—let Thy speaking water me;
Oh, may my spirit, Spirit strike,
Thy Holy Word, a flame, ignite!
Thy present word to me make clear;
Thy secret things, Lord, I would hear.
