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!

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.

I always want this song to be sung just before a sermon in Church. It make me be so ready for the word to edify me.

A yearning of the heart. An expression of a longing of the spirit of man for the Spirit of the Almighty. A wonderful cry of the heart at midnight asking the Almighty to speak His will and direction in the breaking of a new day. Thank You Holy Spirit of our God.

It is inspiring, very good for morning devotion. It moves the spirit to first seek for the Lord's first before going for an adventure of the day.

I believe it pays listening to God alone at all times and do His will.
