Anna Sophia of Hesse, 1658; German text
Speak, O Lord, Thy servant heareth,|
To Thy Word I now give heed;
Life and spirit Thy Word beareth,
All Thy Word is true indeed.
Death's dread power in me is rife;
Jesus, may Thy Word of Life
Fill my soul with love's strong fervor
That I cling to Thee forever.
2. Oh, what blessing to be near Thee
4. Lord, Thy words are waters living|
Where I quench my thirsty need;
Lord, Thy words are bread life-giving,
On Thy words my Soul doth feed.
Lord, Thy words shall be my light
Through death's vale and dreary night;
Yea, they are my sword prevailing
And my cup of joy unfailing.
5. Precious Jesus, I beseech Thee,
