"Wijs me de weg" (English version; Open your eyes) was the Dutch entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1992, performed in Dutch by Humphrey Campbell.

The song is a moderately up-tempo number, with Campbell singing about a search for an existential truth in life, he sings that his search has been - so far - fruitless, but asks his listeners to "show me the way" (or "open their eyes") to various things, including "to love always".

The song was performed twenty-third on the night, following Germany's Wind with "Träume sind für alle da". At the close of voting, it had received 67 points, placing 9th in a field of 23.

It was succeeded as Dutch representative at the 1993 contest by Ruth Jacott with "Vrede".
