Lord Jesus Christ
open the eyes of my heart,
that I may hear Your word
and understand and do Your will,
for I am a sojourner upon the earth.
Hide not Your commandments from me,
but open my eyes, that I may perceive
the wonders of Your law.
Speak unto me the hidden and secret things
of Your wisdom.
On You do I set my hope, O my God,
that You shall enlighen
my mind and udnerstanding with
the light of Your knowledge,
not only to cherish those things
Which are written, but to do them;
that in reading the lives and sayings
of the saints I may not sin,
but that such may serve for my restoration,
enlightenment and sanctification,
for the salvation of my soul,
"and in inheritance of life everlasting.
Folr You are the nelightnement of those
who lie in darkness,
"and from You come every good deed
and every gift.
St. John Chrysostom
( BKS-16 )
