Opened My Eyes, My Beloved Jesus

Being that yesterday was the appropriate Sunday, I wanted to share this with all of you.  This is a hymn for the Man Born Blind.  It is typically recited during communion of the sixth week of the Great Lent.  The attached audio is a recording of the hymn in Arabic.

I am the blind without a companion
I don’t have a friend or a pal
Sitting to beg in the street
Opened my eyes, my beloved Jesus

Refrain:
Opened my eyes, my beloved Jesus
Opened my eyes, my beloved Jesus

It was announced to me about the news
Jesus is coming among the multitudes
i cried have mercy on me Jesus
Opened my eyes, my beloved Jesus

One of the disciples rebuked me
For my cries he criticized me
But Jesus came and asked me
Opened my eyes, my beloved Jesus

I don’t care about the criticizers
Jesus is faithful and his promises are true
He spat on the floor and made clay
Opened my eyes, my beloved Jesus

And the Lord of peace said to me
Go, my son, speedily
And wash in the Silwam Lake
Opened my eyes, my beloved Jesus

And I turned intently
With haste and eagerly
And washed my eyes from the clay
Opened my eyes, my beloved Jesus

Jesus healed me the blind
My heart from joy is overflowing
I was blind and now I see
Opened my eyes, my beloved Jesus

I returned to Jesus with great joy
And I worshipped Him with humility
Confessing that He is the Savior
Opened my eyes, my beloved Jesus

At all times I will witness
To the Redeemer of sins I will inform
I was blind and now I see
Opened my eyes, my beloved Jesus

If you come to Him O sinner
He’ll help you, trust me, Jesus loves you
And He’ll open the eyes of your heart
Opened my eyes, my beloved Jesus
