    Verse 1
    Master, speak! Thy servant heareth,
    Waiting for Thy gracious word,
    Longing for Thy voice that cheereth;
    Master, let it now be heard.
    I am listening, Lord, for Thee;
    What hast Thou to say to me?

    Verse 2
    Speak to me by name, O Master,
    Let me know it is to me;
    Speak, that I may follow faster,
    With a step more firm and free,
    Where the Shepherd leads the flock,
    In the shadow of the Rock.

    Verse 3
    Master, speak! Though least and lowest,
    Let me not unheard depart;
    Master, speak! For O Thou knowest
    All the yearning of my heart,
    Knowest all its truest need;
    Speak, and make me blest indeed.

    Verse 4
    Master, speak: and make me ready,
    When Thy voice is truly heard,
    With obedience glad and steady
    Still to follow every word.
    I am listening, Lord, for Thee:
    Master, speak! O, speak to me!
