Hymn #1: My Opened Eyes

A darkened prison held my soul
Though dark as night, I loved it so.
I loved my chains, though hid from view
I knew not love, I knew not You

My opened eyes now love the light
Which saw no sun, knew only night
And now my hands once bound by sin
Are free to serve my Loving King

I, under sentence, knew no life
But knew well anger, lust, and strife
When I’d despaired of finding grace
My Judge came down and took my place

All my best words could not express
My awe at His Great Faithfulness
That He Whom I’d offended so
Should call me child, and friend also
