Speak thou to me, O Son of God - Speak, for thy servant heareth (Horatius Bonar/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Speak, for thy servant heareth.

1. Speak thou to me, O Son of God,
  and let my spirit hear thy voice;
speak with thy still small voice of love,
  and let this heart of mine rejoice. (PDF - Midi)

2. Speak, as thou didst when here on earth,
  the words of everlasting love;
that my whole soul may yield to thee,
  and in thy steps with gladness move.

3. Take full possession of this heart,
  leave there no part untouched, unfilled;
withdraw each veil that hides thy face,
  and let thy glory be revealed.

4. Tell of thy love and grace, O Christ,
  tell of thy ever-cleansing blood;
tell of thy cross and sacrifice,
  and draw this longing heart to God.

5. Put forth thy power, O mighty Lord,
  break down this proud rebellious will:
root out the unbelief within;
  O teach me, teach me to be still.

6. Say, 'I am thine,' and teach me, Lord,
  to answer with a glad Amen;
teach me to say, 'And I am thine,
  thou fairest of the sons of men.'

7. Say, 'Peace I leave with thee, my peace
  to thee for evermore I give:'
say, 'I am life, my life is thine,
  I live, and ye shall also live.'

8. Abide with us and in us, Lord,
  help us to keep thy cross in view;
Oh tell us all thou art, and say,
  'Abide in me, and I in you.'

9. Put thy left hand beneath my head,
  let thy right hand embrace me still;
Oh bring me to thy festal hall,
  and let me drink of love my fill.

10. Oh speak the word, 'Rise up, my love;
  rise up, my fair one, come away:
the rain is o'er, the winter past,
  the flowers appear, 'tis May, 'tis May!'

11. Speak to the day, and it shall break;
  speak to the shadows, — they shall flee:
then shall we see thee as thou art,
  and be for ever, Lord, with thee.
