Hymn Study: Speak, O Lord

Oh... A long while back now.. before I was married, I went to a women's conference in the States.  I had a great time but it was pre-tablet days and by the end of the conference I was going batty.  Too much sitting, not enough doing.  It was a great conference for all that.

At the conference I was introduced to The Getty's.  Oh.. their music just flooded my soul with energy and praise to God. 

Anyways, when I was thinking what in the world can I do for truth, I couldn't think of a single hymn I do for truth, and then I remembered this song by the Getty's.

Written as a song for your pastor as he presents God's word, and for people as they hear the word of the Lord presented to them.

Lyrics  (source)
“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.

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 pow’r that can never fail—
Let their truth prevail over unbelief.

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.”
And see, I have a song filled with the word truth.. awesome eh? :)
