Open the windows of my heart, my Lord
as wide as its hinges can take it
Let Thy effulgent sunlight pour its beams
of sunshine in all the dark recesses and
enlighten its each and every chink and nook.
Open the gates of my mind, oh Lord
as wide as the width of its size
Let Thy cool bright light permeate
with its radiance and luminescence and
enlighten its each and every part and cell.
With Thy bridge of mercy, oh my Lord
conjoin my enlightened heart and mind
that may they blend and harmonize
and mesh together in free interplay.
