461. Master, Speak!

1 Master, speak! thy servant heareth,
waiting for thy gracious word,
longing for thy voice that cheereth;
Master, let it now be heard.
I am list'ning, Lord, for thee;
What hast thou to say to me?

2 Speak to me by name, O Master,
let me know it is to me;
speak that I may follow faster
with a step more firm and free,
where the Shepherd leads the flock
in the shadow of the rock.

3 Master, speak, and make me ready
when thy voice is truly heard
with obedience glad and steady
still to follow ev'ry word.
I am list'ning, Lord, for thee:
Master, speak! O, speak to me!
