8919. I Obey

1 Speak! Lord, for Thy servant heareth,
Gladly I obey;
Go I forth as one that serveth,
Girded thus alway.

"Go ye, in My name declaring,
God, the only Good";
Wondrous love, its rich unfoldings,
Scarcely understood!

2 As the Master, meek and lowly,
Ministering to all,
With a purpose high and holy,
Heeding Jesus’ call. [Refrain]

3 In the silence waiting, listening,
For the "still, small voice,"
Seeking only for its teaching,
Thus will I rejoice. [Refrain]
