Master, speak! Thy servant heareth

Master, speak! Thy servant heareth,
  Waiting for Thy gracious word,
Longing for Thy voice that cheereth
  Master, let it now be heard.
I am list'ning, Lord, for Thee;
What hast Thou to say to me?
Often through my heart is pealing
  Many another voice than Thine,
Many an unwilled echo stealing
  From the walls of this Thy shrine.
Let Thy longed-for accents fall;
Master, speak! and silence all.
Master, speak! though least and lowest,
  Let me not unheard depart;
Master, speak! for oh, Thou knowest
  All the yearning of my heart.
Knowest all its truest need;
Speak! and make me blest indeed.
Master, speak! and make me ready,
  When Thy voice is truly heard,
With obedience glad and steady,
  Still to follow every word
I am listening, Lord, for Thee:
Master, speak, oh, speak to me!
Speak to me by name, O Master,
  Let me know it is to me;
Speak, that I may follow faster,
  With a step more firm and free,
Where the Shepherd leads the flock
In the shadow of the Rock!

We use to sing this hymn at the primary school by then I was a Muslim but thanks to Jesus I'm a Christian today. This is one of the hymns that makes me fall deep into the Spirit.

I like the song in a special way for it gives me plenty of Joy and it reminds me to that I have to listen what God is telling me.

My husband just passed away and this song is helping me through this dark hour.



I was taught this song in primary school and it continues to draw me closer to my Master each time I sing it. It’s one of my favorite devotional hymns.
