Open the Eyes of My Heart is a Contemporary Christian song written by Paul Baloche, based on Ephesians 1: 18 about the Apostle Paul who was writing a letter to the Ephesians. The song was originally recorded by Paul, but has also been recorded by Michael W. Smith for his album "Worship".


The song is written in verse–chorus form and features very simple lyrics. The first verse consists of the lyrics "Open the eyes of my heart, Lord" (sung twice, the second time without "Lord") and "I want to see You" (sung twice verbatim). The chorus is the most lyrically rich part of the song. The second verse serves as a conclusion. It consists of "Holy, holy, holy" repeated three times and "I want to see You" as the final line, with minor variants at times.

Lyrical structure varies among different covers of this song. For example, the song as made popular by Michael W. Smith features "11C11CCC22222222" as its structure, while the Randy Travis cover features "111C11C2211" as its structure.
