Lord, hast Thou not one word for me

1
Lord, hast Thou not one word for me
To bind my soul more close to Thee,
That every evil I may flee;
One word, O Lord! one word from Thee?
2
One word, to show how weak am I
When in my strength alone I try,
In vain I toil, in vain I sigh;
One word, O Lord! one word from Thee.
3
One word, to show how near Thou art,
For Thou dost dwell within my heart;
And of Thy life I share a part;
One word, O Lord! one word from Thee.
4
One word of power, oh, let me hear,
Above the heart’s most anxious fear,
Thy still, small voice, yet deep and clear;
One word, O Lord! one word from Thee.
5
One word of final triumph, Lord;
Sweet hope Thy promises afford,
To dwell with Thee in sweet accord;
One word, O Lord! one word from Thee.
