1. Lord, speak to me that I may speak
In living echoes of thy tone;
As thou hast sought so let me seek
Thine erring children, lost and lone.
2. O lead me, Lord, that I may lead
The wandering and the wavering feet;
feed me, Lord, that I may feed
Thy hung'ring ones with manna sweet.
3. O give thine own sweet rest to me,
That I may speak with soothing power
A word in season as from thee
To weary ones in needful hour.
4. O fill me with thy fulness, Lord,
Until my very heart o'er flow
In kindling thought and glowing word,
Thy love to tell, thy praise to show.
5. O use me, Lord, use even me,
Just as thou wilt, and when, and where;
Until thy blessed face I see,
Thy rest, thy joy, thy glory share.
