thy rest, thy joy, thy glory share

Lord, Speak to Me 

Frances R. Havergal, 1836-1879

Lord, speak to me, that I may speak

in living echoes of thy tone;

as thou has sought, so let me seek

thine erring children lost and lone.

O strengthen me, that while I stand

firm on the rock, and strong in thee,

I may stretch out a loving land to

wrestlers with the troubled sea.

O teach me, Lord, that I may teach

the precious things thou dost impart;

and wing my words, that they may reach

the hidden depths of many a heart.

O fill me with thy fullness, Lord,

until my very heart o’erflow

in kindling thought and glowing word,

thy love to tell, thy praise to show.

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.
