|Text:||Lord, Speak to Me that I May Speak|
|Author:||Frances Ridley Havergal|
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 lead me, Lord, that I may lead
the wandering and the wavering feet.
O feed me, Lord, that I may feed
your hungering ones with manna sweet.
3 O teach me, Lord, that I may teach
the precious truths which you impart.
And wing my words that they may reach
the hidden depths of many a heart.
4 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.
5 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.

Two great truths inform this text: ﬁrst, that the testimony of experience is powerful and persuasive; and second, that no one should venture to minister on one’s own strength rather than God’s. The tune reﬂects a 19th-century practice of adapting piano pieces as hymn tunes.
