Open My Eyes Devotion

“The eye is the lamp of the body; so then if your eye is clear, your whole body will be full of light.

Matthew 6:22  

Yesterday, I shared a contemporary song. Today, I want to share a hymn-UMC Hymnal 454 “Open My Eyes, That I May See” by Clara Scott. I have put the words from the first stanza and the refrain below.


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!


Ask God to open your eyes. Ask that He will show you the truths that you’ve been missing and enjoy the “sights” in a new way as you look through God’s vision. Ask God to let others see you differently too. May your vision be so clear that people will see the light of God through you.
