Open the Eyes of My Heart
The lyrics of today’s song, Open the Eyes of My Heart, are said to be based on Ephesians Chapter One, where the apostle Paul, while a prisoner at Rome, is writing a letter to the Ephesians. The encouraging words were meant to strengthen the church at Ephesus in the faith of Christ and the Love of God. He calls to mind their salvation by God’s grace and urges them to persevere in their Christian calling because they are forgiven, redeemed heirs through the blood of Christ.
Ephesians 1:17-23 – “That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: 18 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, 19 And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, 20 Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, 21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: 22 And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, 23 Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.”
Song Lyrics: Open the eyes of my heart, Lord! Open the eyes of my heart, I want to see You. Open the eyes of my heart, Lord. I want to see You … to see You high and lifted up, shinin' in the light of Your glory! Pour out Your power and love as we sing holy, holy, holy! Holy, holy, holy! We cry holy, holy, holy! You are holy, holy, holy! I want to see you.
Oh, may the eyes of our understanding be enlightened and our hearts opened to all that Christ has done for us so that we might really see Him and lift His Name on high!
