Open my eyes so I may see and feel
your presence close to me
Give me strength for my stumbling feet
as I battle the crowd on life's busy street
And widen the vision of my unseeing eyes
so in passing faces I'll recognize
not just a stranger, unloved and unknown,
but a friend wth a heart that is much like my own.
I see His blood upon the rose
And in the stars the glory of His eyes,
His body gleams amid eternal snows
His tears fall from the skies.
I see His face in every flower,
The thunder and the singing of the birds
Are but His voice - carven by His power
Rocks are His written words.
All pathways by His feet are worn,
His strong heart stirs the ever-beating sea,
His crown of thorns is twined with every thorn
His cross is every tree.
Give us strength throughout the coming day
quietness of mind
help us to be patient
and always to be kind.
give us reassurrance when everything goes wrong
so our faith remains unfaltering
and our hope and courage strong.
and show us that in quietness
we can feel your presence near
filling us with joy and peace,
and speak that we might hear.
Enjoy God's spectacular precision
The name of the Lord is a strong tower
Thank you for another day!
