  Receive Thy Sight  

 

When the blind suppliant in the way,
    By friendly hands to Jesus led,
Prayed to behold the light of day,
    "Receive thy sight," the Saviour said.

At once he saw the pleasant rays
    That lit the glorious firmament;
And, with firm step and words of praise,
    He followed where the Master went.

Look down in pity, Lord, we pray,
    On eyes oppressed by moral night,
And touch the darkened lids and say
    The gracious words, "Receive thy sight."

Then, in clear daylight, shall we see
    Where walked the sinless Son of God;
And, aided by new strength from Thee,
    Press onward in the path He trod.

       - William Cullen Bryant
