Hymn 82Play music
1. Fill Thou my life, O Lord, my God,
In every part with praise,
That my whole being may proclaim
Thy being and Thy ways.
2 Not for the lip of praise alone,
Nor e'en the praising heart
I ask, but for a life made up
Of praise in every part.
3 Praise in the common things of life,
In goings out and in;
Praise in each duty and each deed,
However small and mean.
4 Fill every part of me with praise,
Let all my being speak
Of Thee, and of Thy love, 0 Lord,
Poor though I be,and weak.
5 So shalt Thou, Lord,from me, e'en me,
Receive the glory due;
And even now shall I begin
The song for ever new.
6 So shall no part of day or night
From sacredness be free;
But all my life in every step
Be fellowship with Thee.
