Lord, Open Thou My Heart to Hear
Melody - Geistliche Lieder, Wittenberg, 1543; may have been composed by Luther as the "Pope and Turk Tune"; Seq. by Richard Jordan
Johannes Olearius, c. 1671; German text
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.
