Open My Eyes, That I May See
Words and Music by Clara H. Scott

Psalm 119:18
"Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold
wondrous things out of thy law."

divider

          Open my eyes, that I may see,
          Glimpes 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,
          Ev'rything false shall disappear.
          Silently now I wait for Thee,
          Ready my God, Thy will to see;
          Open my eyes illumine me, Spirit divine!

          Open my mouth, and let me bear,
          Gladly the warm truth ev'rywhere;
          Open my heart, and let me prepare,
          Love with Thy children thus to share.
          Silently now I wait for Thee,
          Ready my God, Thy will to see;
          Open my eyes illumine me, Spirit divine!
