Subject: Lyr/Chords Add: HE WASHED MY EYES WITH TEARS

This is posted because it has meaning for me, not to proselytize. Since I can't "do" PalTalk on this computer, I sang it on the phone this morning with my step-daughter, for a dear friend.

BTW, the source songbook says "Country & Western" in its title, but it isn't. It's pure old-timey (and new old-timey-sounding) southern gospel.

(Joe Offer, I'm sorry if this isn't perfect formatting-- it's what I could do, today.)

HE WASHED MY EYES WITH TEARS
(Ira Stanphill)

He washed my (Eb)eyes with tears, that I might (Bb7)see
The broken heart I had was good for (Eb)me.
He tore it all apart and looked in(Bb7)side;
He found it full of fear, and foolish (Eb)pride.
He swept a(Ab)way the things that made me (Eb)blind,
And then I (F7)saw the clouds were silver-(Bb7)lined. (F7, Bb)
And now I (Eb)understand 'twas best for (Bb7)me--
He washed my eyes with tears, that I might (Eb)see.

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.
