Please open our eyes, Lord,
Because closing you out we cannot afford.
Open our eyes to what is true,
To the inspired words that have come from You.
Open our eyes to what is honorable,
Never supporting what You find intolerable.
Open our eyes to what is right,
So that we can stand up for it with all our might.
Open our eyes to what is pure,
Turn our eyes from the evil things that allure.
Open our eyes to what is lovely,
The most beautiful being the heavenly.
Open our eyes to what is good,
Help us to center on these things, as we should.
Open our eyes to what is excellent,
Such as Your love, which is evident.
Open our eyes to what is worthy of praise,
May this be the constant focus of our gaze.
Whatever is true, honorable, pure, and worthy of praise in your sight,
Whatever is lovely, good, excellent, and right,
On these things help us forever to dwell.
Yes, Lord, open our eyes, that we may never against you rebel.
Philippians 4:8 – “Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.”
