Speak, Oh Lord

This week has been a crazy one for me (and the whole month is shaping up to be pretty busy), and this song has been on my mind a lot. I thought I would share it with you, because it is one of my absolute favorite songs, and really a prayer for my life.

Here it is for you to listen to as well: Speak Oh Lord

Speak Oh Lord
Written by Keith & Krystin Getty

Speak Oh Lord, as we come to You
To receive the food of Your holy word.
Take Your truths, plant them 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 Oh 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
Your majestic love and authority.
Words of power that can never fail,
Let their truth prevail over unbelief.

Speak Oh 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 Oh Lord, till Your church is built,
And the earth is filled with Your glory.
