Speak, Savior, Speak

Representative Text

1 Let me hear thy voice now speaking,
Let me hear and I’ll obey;
While before thy cross I’m seeking,
O chase my fears away!
O let the light now falling
Reveal my every need,
Now hear me while I’m calling,
O speak, and I will heed!

Speak, Saviour, speak!
Obey thee I will ever,
Now at thy cross I seek
From all that’s wrong to sever.

2 Let me hear and I will follow
Though the path be strewed with thorns;
It is joy to share thy sorrow,
Thou makest calm the storm.
Now my heart thy temple making,
In thy fulness dwell with me;
Every evil way forsaking,
Thine only I will be.

3 Let the blood of Christ for ever
Flood and cleanse my heart within,
That to grieve thee I may never
More stain my soul with sin.
Farewell to worldly pleasure,
Farewell to self and pride;
How wondrous is my treasure
With Jesus at my side.
