1 Lord Jesus, let these eyes of mine
reflect your beauty and your grace;
so joyful and so tender shine
that other eyes shall seek your face.

2 Lord, use my ears, for I rejoice
to hear the word of life with awe
I listen for the whispering voice
that calls beyond the thunder's roar.

3 And holy Jesus, set my mind
to search for truth and know your way;
to think upon the good I find,
to spurn the night and love the day:

4 And may my hands, which learned their skill
at your direction, by your love,
now deftly moving at your will
console, encourage and improve.

5 So to your throne, O Christ, again
my sense of sight and sound I bring;
and in my mind I let you reign,
and with my hands serve you, my king:

6 Speak through this voice that you have given,
your love and mercy to proclaim,
until we join the choirs of heaven
and sing the glory of your name!
