LET NOT A MOMENT SLIP AWAY
By Patrick N. Kramer

Open my eyes dear Lord so as I may see.
Let me see all that truly surrounds me.
Let me see they who give me their love.
Open my eyes I pray to You in Heaven above.
Open my eyes as wide as they can be.
Let me see what it is I fail to see.

Open my ears dear Lord so as that I may hear.
Let me hear all that comes to my ear.
Let me hear the love that comes my way.
Let me hear the voices of; they who love me I pray.
Open my ears so as that I may hear.
Let me hear what sadly I am missing I fear.

Open my mouth and give me words to speak.
The proper things to say my Lord I do seek.
Open my mouth and give me the proper words to say.
Help me to speak to those who love me I pray.
Open my mouth and the proper words to me give.
Help me Lord to ask others of me to forgive.

Help me Lord to think before I do.
Help me to better I do pray to you.
Help me Lord to understand where I go wrong.
Help Lord to be better and have a love that is strong.
Help me My Lord to be better upon this and every day.
Help me to not let another important moment slip away.
