Words of opening hymn:

I saw the grass, I saw the trees,
And the boats along the shore.
I saw the shapes of many things
I had only guessed before.
And I saw the faces of men more clearly
Than if I had never been blind:
The lines of envy around their lips
And the greed and the hate in their eyes:

Chorus
And I turned away,
Yes, I turned away,
For I had seen the perfect face
Of a real and proper man:
The man who brought me from the dark
Into light-where life began.

2.
I made my way into the town,
To the busy crowded streets:
The shops and stores and alleyways,
Through the squalor and the heat.
And I saw the faces of men more clearly
Than if I had never been blind:
The lines of envy around their lips
And the greed and the hate in their eyes:

3.
I made my way into the hills,
To a quiet and lonely place.
I found a clear unruffled pool
And I gazed upon my face.
And I saw this face of mine more clearly
Than if I had never been blind:
The lines of envy around my lips
And the greed and the hate in my eyes:

4.
I saw the grass, I saw the trees,
And the boats along the shore.
I saw the shapes of many things
I had only guessed before.
And I saw the faces of men more clearly
Than if I had never been blind:
The lines of sorrow around their lips
And the child looking out from their eyes:
