Oh, Speak To Me, My Blessed Lord

在前年初搜尋有關喜嘉理牧師的文獻之過程中,找得一份樂譜,歌名是 Oh, Speak To Me, My Blessed Lord,作曲者是 Z. M. Parvin,歌詞卻竟是出自喜牧的手筆!



Lyrics by C. R. Hager
Music by Seacow Wheat

Oh, speak to me, my bless-ed Lord;
A-mid life’s lust-y hurry-ing tread;
Calm thou my fears and quak-ing heart,
Un-til my soul with thine is wed.
Oh, speak to me at ear-ly morn,
When low I bend the knee in prayer
To seek thy ho-ly spirits’ cheer,
E-ter-nal joys with thee to share. (Refrain)

  Oh, speak to me in ev-ery hour,
  With some sweet mess-age from above.
  Oh, let me hear thee ev-er speak
  Of God’s own glorious, won-drous love.

Oh, speak to me at twi-light’s eve,
In gent-le whisp-ers soft and low;
When I am wear-y, faint and weak,
Then teach me thy sweet rest to know,
Oh, speak to me my bles-sed Lord,
When temp-ted, tired and very sore
En-fold me in thy lov-ing arms,
And hide me there for ev-er-more. (Refrain)

Oh, speak to me, my bless-ed Lord,
That I may tell in ac-cents sweet,
The sto-ry of thy gra-cious love,
‘Till all on earth its song re-peat,
Oh, speak to me when an-gels come
To bear my soul to realms of light,
That I may look be-yond earth’s night,
To Bethl’hem’s star for-ev-er bright. (Refrain)
