Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine,
you did for me (Matthew 25:40; NIV).
1. Open our eyes,
So we see your face
In all we greet.
2. Open our minds,
So we know your pain
In those we meet.
3. Open our hearts,
So we share your love
With all mankind.
4. Open our souls,
So we cease, at last, Lord,
To be blind.
