"That I should know how to speak a word in
season to him who is weary" - Isa. 50:4

1.  LORD, speak to me, that I may speak 

     In living echoes to Thy tone

     As Thou has sought so let me seek 

     Thy erring children lost and lone.

2.  Oh, lead me, Lord, that I may lead 

     The wand‘ring and the wav’ring feet 

     O, feed me Lord, that I may feed

     Thy hung’ring ones with manna sweet.

3.  Oh, 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 troubl’d sea.

4.  Oh, 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 hearts.

5.  Oh, give Thine own sweet rest to me, 

     That I may speak with soothing pow‘r 

     A word in season, as from Thee

     To weary ones in needful hour.

6.  Oh, fill me with Thy fullness, Lord 

     Until my very heart o'erflow

     In kindling thought, and glowing word 

     Thy love to tell, Thy praise to show.

7.  Oh, use me, Lord, use even me

     Just as Thou wilt, and how, and where

     Until Thy blessed face I see 

     Thy rest, Thy joy, Thy glory share.  Amin
