Make me blind Lord
That I may see with eyes unseeing.
That I may listen to people's hearts without judgment.
'Till this Lord, my eyes are wide shut
Make me deaf Lord,
That I may hear with ears unhearing,
That I may listen before speech
and hear beyond what is intended.
'Till this Lord, I hear nothing.
Make me dumb Lord
That I may speak with words unspoken
That I may voice my thoughts,
thus make me a listener.
'Till this Lord, my mouth precedes my heart.
Make me tasteless Lord
That I may taste all the flavors of your world.
That I may be reminded that the world
is flavorless without You.
'Till this Lord, I taste nothing.
Make me without touch Lord.
That I may touch all with an open heart and mind.
That I touch lives without interference or worry.
Till this Lord, I touch nothing.
Without these gifts Lord,
I am unprepared to do Your work.
Make me as the falcon who soars high above,
Thus a light in the darkness I will shine
Above the world..
