Representative Text

1 Like Samuel of old we wait;
Thy still, small voice to hear,
Once more attune our trembling hearts;
O Holy One, draw near.

Refrain:
Here am I, here am I,
Speak, for Thy servant heareth;
Here am I, here am I,
Speak, for Thy servant heareth.

2 As days and weeks and months roll by,
And strong temptations come;
Lord, may we never miss Thy voice
And into darkness roam. [Refrain]

3 Forbid that we should be ashamed
When e’er Thy voice we hear,
To answer as did Samuel,
Without a thought of fear. [Refrain]

4 And when the call of death shall come,
And come it surely will;
May we be found in faith and love,
These words repeating still. [Refrain]
