Lord, Open Thou Me Heart to Hear

Lord, Open Thou My Heart to Hear” by Johannes Olearius, 1611-1684 Translated by Matthias Loy, 1828-1915

Text From: THE LUTHERAN HYMNAL (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1941)

1. Lord, open Thou my heart to hear And through Thy Word to me draw near; Let me Thy Word e’er pure retain, Let me Thy child and heir remain.

2. Thy Word doth deeply move the heart, Thy Word doth perfect health impart, Thy Word my soul with joy doth bless, Thy Word brings peace and happiness.

3. To God, the Father, God the Son, And God the Spirit, Three in One, Shall glory, praise and honor be Now and throughout eternity.
