A little girl in her new Easter dress
Covered her eyes as though a princess
Not to ignore, but in fun to play
Hide and see in a peek a boo way

And for her I sang this song
As a tear trickled along
Memories of a yester year
Came upon me all so clear

My mothers voice and her piano
As she rejoiced, her face all aglow
Now my eyes have opened and I can see!
T’was love she had been sharing with me!

An oldy to remember
Open My Eyes, That I May See
Clara H. Scott, 1841-1897

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.
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 wavenotes fall on my ear,
everything false will disappear.
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.
Silently now I wait for thee,
ready, my God, thy will to see.
Open my heart, illumine me, Spirit divine!
