Open our inner eyes,
That sin won’t take us by surprise…
That we may see
What comes from Thee,
And evil, although disguised!
Open our spiritual ken,
To want You not just now and then…
But seek every day
Your excellent way,
Through the Spirit Whom thou hast sent.
Open our eyes to discerning,
Your will in the midst of learning…
When You are not near,
Increase for Your wisdom, our yearning!
