Lord, speak to me, that I may speak

Lord, speak to me, that I may speak
In living echoes of Thy tone;
As Thou hast sought, so let me seek
Thy erring children lost and lone.
O lead me, Lord, that I may lead
The wandering and the wavering feet;
O feed me, Lord, that I may feed
Thy hungering ones with manna sweet.
O strengthen me, that while I stand
Firm on the rock, and strong in Thee,
I may stretch out a loving hand
To wrestlers with the troubled sea.
O teach me, Lord, that I may teach
The precious things Thou dost impart;
And wing my words, that they may reach
The hidden depths of many a heart.
O give Thine own sweet rest to me,
That I may speak with soothing power
A word in season, as from Thee
To weary ones in needful hour.
O fill me with Thy fulness, Lord,
Until my very heart o’erflow
In kindling thought and glowing word,
Thy love to tell, Thy praise to show.
O use me, Lord, use even me,
Just as Thou wilt, and when, and where,
Until Thy blessed face I see,
Thy rest, Thy joy, Thy glory share!

I sang this song about twenty plus years ago, but this morning, The Lord put this song in my mouth while in the bathroom.

"Lord I am ready for your use any moment any where any how".

Thank you hymnal.net Team, for making this and other hymns available for the revival of the hungry souls. More grace to you.

I haven't sang this song in ages, and it came to my heart this morning. Thank you Lord Jesus for the gift of salvation and the call to consecration.

Bishop Prince Antai

I must have sang the hymn last 46 years ago. While on our Episcopal retreat this week, the Holy Spirit recalled and warmed my heart with it. I experienced a revival with a renewed sense of commitment to the King's service. I remembered my ordination and consecration vows and their implications. Allelujah!
