1 Fill thou my life, O Lord my God,
In ev'ry part with praise,
That my whole being may proclaim
Thy being and thy ways.
2 Not for the lip of praise alone,
Nor e'en the praising heart,
I ask, but for a life made up
Of praise in ev'ry part;
3 Praise in the common things of life,
Its goings out and in,
Praise in each duty and each deed,
However small and mean.
4 Fill ev'ry part of me with praise;
Let all my being speak
Of thee and of they love, O Lord,
Poor though I be, and weak.
5 So shalt thou, Lord, from me, e'en me,
Receive the glory due,
And so shall I begin on earth
The song for ever new.
6 So shall no part of day or night
From sacredness be free:
But all my life, in ev'ry step,
Be fellowship with thee.
