O let me hear Thee speaking in accents clear and still/Above the storms of passion, the murmurs of self-will/O speak to reassure me, to hasten, or control/O speak and make me listen/Thou guardian of my soul.

O let me see Thy foot-marks and, in them, plant mine own/My hope to follow duly is in Thy strength alone/O guide me, call me, draw me, uphold me to the end/And then in heaven receive me, my Savior and my Friend. – John Ernest Bode (1816-1874), English Anglican priest, educator, poet, and hymnist
