Hymn/Song Information

My opening eyes with rapture see The




My opening eyes with rapture see
The dawn of this returning day;
My thoughts, O God, ascend to Thee,
While thus my early vows I pay.


I yield my heart to Thee alone,
Nor would receive another guest:
Eternal King, erect Thy throne,
And reign sole monarch in my breast.


O bid this trifling world retire,
And drive each carnal thought away;
Nor let me feel one vain desire,
One sinful thought, through all the day.


Then, to Thy courts when I repair,
My soul shall rise on joyful wing,
The wonders of Thy love declare,
And join the strains which angels sing.
