Show Me Christ
Open up your Word to me, Lord
Help me to understand
Show me what you’re teaching me, Lord
And guide me by your hand.
Show me the treasures in your Word
Reveal them to my heart
Open up my eyes to see, Lord
Show me where to start.
Teach me by your living Word
Examples of how to live
Teach me how to die to myself
And then reach out and give.
Show me Christ in all the pages
Show me the wisdom of the ages
Show me the end of all that’s to be
Show me the future laid up for me.
Help me always to see you, Lord
In each and every book
In all sixty-six – I know you’re there
Please show me how to look.
Teach me, oh Lord, your will each day
Tell me how to live your perfect way
Lord, I want to be pleasing to you
Show me how to be faithful and true
Show me how to be just like you.

And beginning at Moses and all the prophets,
He expounded unto them in all the scriptures
the things concerning Himself.
Search the scriptures;
for in them ye think ye have eternal life:
and they are they which testify of Me.
Jesus in John 5:39
Then said I, Lo, I come
(in the volume of the book it is written of Me,)
to do thy will, O God.
Open Thou mine eyes,
that I may behold wondrous things out of Thy law.
David’s prayer in Psalm 119:18
But we all, with open face
beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord,
are changed into the same image from glory to glory,
even as by the Spirit of the Lord.
2 Corinthians 3:18
Here’s a little poem by someone else on the verse above:
When the child of God,
Looks into the Word of God,
And sees the Son of God,
He is changed by the Spirit of God,
Into the image of God,
For the glory of God.
