Master, speak! Thy servant heareth

1
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?
2
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.
3
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.
4
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!
5
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!

I love the living speaking breathing God; Jesus Christ the word of God. He us rich to all who call upon Him.

Lord Jesus make me one who keeps Your word, one who abides in You. Please grant me this grace. Amen.

FRH has written many insightful and inspiring texts. Master, Speak! is one I find helpful to reflect upon, and to allow to penetrate my daily walk with God.

Hearing our God speak is a beauty one can't fully comprehend because you continue to discover truth upon truth. His Word is the strongest medium. I love Jesus.

Not just through the scriptures....God does speak today like He did to Samuel....we can indeed hear His voice! ........the theme of this song I suppose is this.

True devotion and faith and obedience will indeed make us hear His voice!

Master speak Thy servant hearth.....
