I Obey Is­a­bel­la G. Gould & Plu­ma M. Brown, 1897 (🔊 pdf nwc).

Speak! Lord, for Thy servant heareth,
Gladly I obey;
Go I forth as one that serveth,
Girded thus alway.


Go ye, in My name declaring,
God, the only Good
Wondrous love, its rich unfoldings,
Scarcely understood!

As the Master, meek and lowly,
Ministering to all,
With a purpose high and holy,
Heeding Jesus’ call.


In the silence waiting, listening,
For the still, small voice,
Seeking only for its teaching,
Thus will I rejoice.
