561. Lord, Speak to Me That I May Speak

1 Lord, 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.

2 O teach me, Lord, that I may teach
the precious things you do impart.
And wing my words that they may reach
the hidden depths of many a heart.

3 O fill me with your fullness, Lord,
until my very heart o'erflow
in kindling thought and glowing word
your love to tell, your praise to show.

4 O use me, Lord, use even me,
just as you will, and when, and where
until your blessed face I see,
your rest, your joy, your glory share.
