    I read this in a book around Christmas time and sing it often to myself. It has new meaning to me as a result of our study this week.
    I thought it appropriate to share here this week.
    It is from a hymn by Clare Scott.

    Open my eyes, that I may see
    Glimpses of truth Thou hast for me;
    Place in my hands the wonderful key
    That shall unclasp and set me free.

    Open my ears, that I may hear
    Voices of truth Thou sendest clear;
    And while the wave notes fall on my ear,
    Everything false will disappear

    This is a beautiful prayer since it was Jesus’ correct view of man that healed the sick! We must all desire this view so that we can see ourselves correctly and see others in the same true light. As one author put it: Father you were there, what did you see?

    This is a wonderful question to ask ourselves when animal magnetism presents its false pictures; we can always expect that what God reveals to us is the opposite harmonious view contrary to the lies of mortal mind!
