We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Let me hear thy voice now speaking

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.
