Fill Thou my life, O Lord my God

Psalms_86-11-1: Teach me thy way, O LORD; I will walk in thy truth: unite my heart to fear thy name.

Psalms_86-11-1: Teach me thy way, O LORD; I will walk in thy truth: unite my heart to fear thy name.

Fill Thou my life, O Lord my

God,

In every part with praise,

That my whole being may

proclaim

Thy being and Thy ways.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Not for the lip of praise alone,

Not e’en the praising heart,

I ask, but for a life made up

Of praise in every part:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Praise in the common things of life,

Its goings out and in;

Praise in each duty and each deed,

However small and mean.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fill every part of rise with

praise;

Let all my being speak

Of Thee and of Thy love, 0

Lord,

Poor though I be and weak.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So shalt Thou, Lord, from me,

e’en me,

Receive the glory due;

And so shall I begin on earth

The song for ever new.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So shall no part of day or night

From sacredness be free;

But all my life, in every step,

Be fellowship with Thee.
