    This Past Sunday We sang a new hymn called “Speak O Lord”
    This hymn is called a “Hymn of Illumination.” it is a hymn that calls us to prepare to hear the Word of God as it is taught.

    We want God word to speak to us and we need to be obedient to what the word says.

    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 fulfill 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
