1.  See how blind we have become,
Oh, Lord, open up our eyes;
we've become so dead within,
tell us to arise.

2.  We've been blind to suffering
we have turned and looked away;
we've become so dead within,
tell us to arise.

3.  How we hunger for much more,
much more than what we now have;
You alone can feed us, Lord,
life is what we crave.

4.  Fill us 'till we overflow,
with your life - and life to spare;
Give us eyes to find the blind,
we will see you there.
