My Eyes Are Open

Affirming The Classics: Open My Eyes That I May See
Hymn by Clara H. Scott & Frederick P. Morris

My eyes are open, I now see
The Light of truth You share with me
I have in my hands the wonderful key
My heart is open, I Am set free

Silently now I commune with Thee
I Am ready my God, for all to see
My eyes are open, You are in me
Spirit Divine!

My ears are open, I now hear
Voices of truth, pure and clear
Divine Energy speaks in my ear
Messages of love, my way to steer

Silently now I commune with Thee
I Am ready my God, for all to see
My eyes are open, You are in me
Spirit Divine!

I speak my truth and I share
Peace and forgiveness everywhere
My heart is open, I truly care
My unconditional love I lay bare

Silently now I commune with Thee
I Am ready my God, for all to see
My eyes are open, You are in me
Spirit Divine!

My mind is open when I read
Of Your love, it plants a seed
Love and Light are all I need
To blossom, grow, and succeed

Silently now I commune with Thee
I Am ready my God, for all to see
My eyes are open, You are in me
Spirit Divine!

About This Poem

At the moment I have quite a few new poems to add, and I had not made a decision as to which one I would add this weekend. However, this morning I woke in the early hours with this hymn being sung on my mind! There was no reason for this, but trying to get back to sleep it just kept on repeating until I accepted that this was obviously a sign I need to add this poem today! There are certainly other poems I would have chosen to add before this one, but for whatever reason, I now know this had to be the one!

Although the hymn is full of positivity, it is written from an aspect of lack – by asking for something, we are acknowledging that we lack it. So, my version focuses on already having, or being the various aspects – along with an ‘I AM’ to boost the power of creativity!
There is a link page if you would like to read more of my Affirming The Classics.

As you can see, I wrote this in February, but today, as I re-read it, I notice how relevant it seems to so much of what I have been coming across lately..

NOW is the time for us to BE our Divine true selves and to ‘Speak Our Truth’ and shine our Light, Love, Peace and Forgiveness ‘For All To See’

Namaste & the Light of ‘May The Forth be with you!’ 🙂 

Original hymn:

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
Voice of truth Thou sendest clear
And while the wave-notes fall on my ear
Everything false will disappear

Silently now I wait for Thee
Ready, my God, Thy will to see
Open my eyes, illumine me
Spirit Divine!

Open my mouth and let me bear
Tidings of mercy 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 eyes, illumine me
Spirit Divine!

Open my mind, that I may read
More of Thy love in word and deed
What shall I fear while yet Thou dost lead?
Only for light from Thee I plead

Silently now I wait for Thee
Ready, my God, Thy will to see
Open my eyes, illumine me
Spirit Divine!

Clara H. Scott 1841 – 1897
Frederick P. Morris

    • Thank you so very much Amira, I’m so pleased you are enjoying these new versions. As you know, ‘speaking your truth’ always reminds me of you, and puts a smile on my face at how everything has flown for us both from those words! 🙂 Thank you and Bless you for your appreciation of my ‘work.’ ❤ ❤ ❤
