541-Lord, Speak to Me

Lord, speak to me, that I may speak 
in living echoes of thy tone; 
as thou has sought, so let me seek 
thine erring children lost and lone. 

O lead me, Lord, that I may lead 
the wandering and the wavering feet;
O feed me, Lord, that I may feed
thy hungering ones with manna sweet.

O strengthen me, that while I stand 
firm on the rock, and strong in thee, 
I may stretch out a loving land 
to wrestlers with the troubled sea.
