Lord, speak to us, that we may speak
in living echoes of your tone.
As you have sought, so let us seek
your straying children, lost and lone.
Oh, lead us, Lord, that we may lead
the wand’ring and the wav’ring feet.
Oh, feed us, Lord, that we may feed
your hung’ring ones with manna sweet.
Oh, teach us, Lord, that we may teach
the precious truths which you impart.
And wing our words, that they may reach
the hidden depths of many a heart.
Oh, fill us with your fullness, Lord,
until our very hearts o’erflow
in kindling thought and glowing word,
your love to tell, your praise to show.
