God, speak to me that I may speak
In living echoes of your tone;
As you have sought, so let me seek
Your erring children lost and lone.
O strengthen me, that I may stand
Firm on the rock of certainty
That I may stretch a loving hand
To wrestlers with the troubled sea.
O teach me, God that I may teach
The precious things that you impart;
And wing my words, that they may reach
The hidden depths of many a heart.
O fill me with your fullness,
God, until my very heart oe’r flow
In kindling thought that shines abroad,
Your love to tell, your praise to show. Amen.
