Speak, O Lord, as we come to You
To receive the food of Your Holy Word,
Take Your truth; plant it deep in us;
Shape and fashion us in Your likeness,
That the light of Christ might be seen today
In our acts of love and deeds of faith.
Speak, O Lord, and fulfill in us
All Your purposes for Your glory.
Teach us, Lord, full obedience,
Holy reverence, true humility;
Test our thoughts and our attitudes
In the radiance of Your purity.
Cause our faith to rise; cause our eyes to see
Words of power that can never fail--
Let their truth prevail over unbelief.
Help us grasp the heights of Your plans for us--
