Hymn & Scripture Challenge #10 - Open My Eyes

Wow, I have been so busy that I am just now getting to Hymn & Scripture Challenge # 10 and I still have one more to do and then one should come out tomorrow.  Maybe I will catch up before long.  But when I saw this Hymn, I knew that it was a favorite and one that we need to sing daily, weekly, etc. Beautiful hymn and beautiful Lyrics.  Here are the Lyrics to the song!

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.

Refrain 1:
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.

Refrain 2:
Silently now I wait for Thee,
Ready my God, Thy will to see,
Open my ears, illumine me,
Spirit divine!

Open my mouth, and let me bear,
Gladly the warm truth everywhere;
Open my heart and let me prepare
Love with Thy children thus to share.

Refrain 3:
Silently now I wait for Thee,
Ready my God, Thy will to see,
Open my heart, illumine me,
Spirit divine!

Isn't that just beautiful I love it and it really says all there is to say!  We need to do this every hour, every day and all year long.  If so the world would be a different place.  And that is where the idea for the page came from.  Illumine me Spirit Divine!
