SPEAK, O LORD

  Lyrics

Verse 1
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 our deeds of faith
Speak O Lord and fulfil in us
All your purposes for your glory

Verse 2
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
Your majestic love and authority
Words of power that can never fail
Let their truth prevail over unbelief

Verse 3
Speak, O Lord, and renew our minds
Help us grasp the heights of your plans for us
Truths unchanged from the dawn of time
That will echo down through eternity
And by grace we’ll stand on your promises
And by faith we’ll walk as you walk with us
Speak, O Lord, till your church is built
And the earth is filled with your glory

  Sample Introduction

Speak O Lord and renew our minds, Help us grasp the heights of Your plans for us, Truths unchanged from the dawn of time, That will echo down through eternity.

Our God speaks! This is an amazing truth that we can easily take for granted. Through his word God builds his church by conforming each one of us into the likeness of his Son. So as we sing this song let us pray that God would renew us with his unchanging truth..
