Before Sermon. Deut. 32. 2, 3; Isa. 55. 11

D. Herbert           C.M.

1
Lord, fill thy servant’s soul today
With pure seraphic fire,
And set his tongue at liberty,
And grant his soul’s desire.

2
O may he preach the word of God
With energy and power;
May gospel-blessings spread around,
Like a refreshing shower.

3
May God’s eternal love and grace
Be sweetly felt within;
While he is preaching Christ the Lord,
Who bore our curse and sin.

4
May burdened sinners lose their load,
And downcast souls rejoice;
May doubting souls believe today
They are Jehovah’s choice.

5
May Christ be first, and Christ be last,
And Christ be all in all,
Who died to make salvation sure,
And raise us from the fall.

6
O may thy servant now today
Proclaim salvation free,
As finished by the Son of God,
For such poor souls as we.
