Looking for the words to this old song for my friend who has lost the sight in one eye and the other eye is very blurred. Thank you

He Washed My Eyes With Tears

Here are the lyrics to this beautiful hymn. It is a very personal one to me, and I hope it brings some comfort and hope to your friend.

1.
He washed my eyes with tears that I might see,
The broken heart I had was good for me;
He tore it all apart and looked inside,
He found it full of fear and foolish pride.
He swept away the things that made me blind
And then I saw the clouds were silver lined;
And now I understand 'twas best for me
He washed my eyes with tears that I might see.

2.
He washed my eyes with tears that I might see
The glory of Himself revealed to me;
I did not know that He had wounded hands
I saw the blood He spilt upon the sands.
I saw the marks of shame and wept and cried;
He was my substitute for me He died;
And now I'm glad He came so tenderly;
And washed my eyes with tears that I might see.

God bless,
Steve

Hi Russ,

You can find it in this anthology:

The Homecoming Souvenir Songbook, Volume 1

The book also contains a number of other great gospel songs.

God bless!

I'm glad I found this post. I woke up this morning with this song going over in my head. I'm on my way to my favorite spot to journal with the Lord, and I know this song will be apart of my journaling time with Him. My eyes at thia very moment in time are being washed with tears that I may see and understand the things the people in my life.

Thanks once again,
Rev. Paula Gadbois
