UNTIL YOU OPEN MY EYES

can't hear your voice until you open up my ears. I can't recognise your face until you
open my eyes, and I can see you;
break the bread, your body will make me strong.

1. Adam's sin keeps me locked up in these chains, and I try in vain to find the key.
You break through these prison walls,
you break through these prison walls for me.

2. No-one knows where the Holy Spirit goes, but we see the trail he leaves behind:
eyes that now are opened up,
eyes that now are opened up were blind.

3. Jesus' friends thought they really knew him then, but they still depended on a sign.
Maybe I will understand,
Maybe I will understand next time.1983. Another song written for the student service at St. Stephen's, when the theme was based on Luke 24:31 "Their eyes were opened and they recognised him". This story of the encounter on the road to Emmaus is another shining illustration of the core of the Christian faith: it's God who acts before we even think about it, God who opens blind eyes, God who loves those who are still sinners.
