Hymns of the Week

  • Hymn: Speak Oh Lord (by Getty/Townsend)

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.

  • Trinity Hymnal 447 Christ For the World We Sing

1 Christ for the world we sing; the world to Christ we bring
with loving zeal: the poor and them that mourn,
the faint and overborne, sin-sick and sorrow worn, whom Christ doth heal.

2 Christ for the world we sing; the world to Christ we bring
with fervent pray’r: the wayward and the lost,
by restless passions tossed, redeemed at countless cost from dark despair.

3 Christ for the world we sing; the world to Christ we bring
with one accord: with us the work to share,
with us reproach to dare, with us the cross to bear, for Christ our Lord.

4 Christ for the world we sing; the world to Christ we bring
with joyful song: the newborn souls whose days,
reclaimed from error’s ways, inspired with hope and praise, to Christ belong.
