In thee O! Lord! do I put my trust.
I know that my power to see is perfect and indestructible. I cannot lose it, nothing can destroy it.
I know that every faculty and power I use, is in my real being, and that my supply is unfailing.
Though the shapes of this world are still with me, they are no longer the real to me.
I am opening my eyes to see what is behind them; and with all my heart I rejoice and give thanks for my increasing power of vision.
I know that day by day I see more and more of the real and eternal. I am growing more and more conscious of my limitless range of vision.
Infinity lies open before me, and little by little I am entering in to behold thy glories O Lord!
I feel no disappointment, no sadness, no sorrow, because shapes are not so huge to me as they once were. I know that in the fullness of the time all planes will be visible to me and at my command.
I shall be satisfied when I wake entirely from this dream and see only thy likeness everywhere.
I know that the twilight of this plane is but the forerunner of the brighter day.
Help me to keep my inner eye fixed upon thee; then shall my outer eye fill its office more completely, while in all things I rejoice and give thanks.
Help me to feel that the fading of the outward is the revelation of the inward; and that at all times and in all places, thou art with me to strengthen my sight and my heart.
My prayer is answered, and I know that thou art with me always. I need not strain my eye to see, I need not weep the tears that blind.
From thee O! Lord! come unto me all good things. Of what shall I be afraid!
The region of graves is behind me. They have given up their dead. I see, I feel, I know.
God shall be glorified in me.
I am that I am.
