Open my eyes, dear Lord, to see
Glimpses of Your matchless grace;
Silently now I wait to be
Granted a view of Your face.
Unbind the shackles of my shame—
You alone have the power—
That I may glorify Your name
Here in this quiet hour.
Ready to faint I come, O Lord, to You
For mercies many, blessings not a few.
Psalm 27:13-14 I had fainted unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.
