1.  Speak, O Lord, Thy servant heareth,

To Thy word I now give heed;

Life and spirit Thy word beareth,

All Thy word is truth indeed;

Death’s dread power in me is rife;

Jesus, may Thy word of life

Fill my soul with love’s strong fervor,

That I cling to Thee forever.

2.  O what blessing to be near Thee,

And to hearken to Thy voice;

May I ever love and fear Thee,

That Thy word may be my choice

Oft were hardened sinners, Lord,

Struck with terror at Thy word;

But to him for sin who grieveth

Comfort sweet and hope it giveth.

3.  Lord, Thy words are waters living,

Where I quench my thirsty need;

Lord, Thy words are bread life-giving;

On Thy words my soul doth feed;

Lord, Thy words shall be my light

Through death’s vale and dreary night;

Yea, they are my sword prevailing,

And my cup of joy unfailing.

4.  Precious Jesus, I beseech Thee:

May Thy words take root in me;

May this gift from heaven enrich me,

So that I bear fruit for Thee;

Take them never from my heart

Till I see Thee as Thou art,

When in heavenly bliss and glory

I shall see Thee and adore Thee.

5.  All the world is full of sorrow;

Dearest Jesus, hear Thou me:

Come what may today, tomorrow,

May I firmly stand with Thee

On Thy word’s unfaltering ground;

And when death’s dread call shall sound,

I shall sing in its dark mazes

To Thy name my grateful praises.

1.  I come to Thee, O blessed Lord,

Invited by Thy gracious word

To this Thy feast, to sup with Thee,

Grant that a worthy guest I be.

2.  I come to Thee with sin and grief,

For Thou alone canst give relief,

Thy death for me, dear Lord, I plead:

O Jesus, help me in my need!

3.  Shouldst Thou a strict account demand,

Who could, O Lord, before Thee stand?

Purge all my secret sins away:

Be Thou, O Christ, the sinner’s stay!

4.  O Jesus, Lamb of God, alone,

Who didst for all our sins atone,

Though I have sinned and gone astray,

Turn not, O Lord, Thy guest away!

5.  O Jesus, Lamb of God alone,

Who didst for our sins atone,

Be merciful, I Thee implore,

Have mercy, Lord, for evermore!

1.  Before Thee, God, who knowest all

With grief and shame I prostrate fall;

I see my sins against Thee, Lord,

The sins of thought, of deed, and word,

They press me sore, I cry to Thee:

O God, be merciful to me!

2.  O Lord, my God, to Thee I pray:

O cast me not in wrath away,

Let Thy good Spirit ne’er depart,

But let Him draw to Thee my heart,

That truly penitent I be:

O God, be merciful to me!

3.  O Jesus, let Thy precious blood

Be to my soul a cleansing flood;

Turn not, O Lord, Thy guest away,

But grant that justified I may

Go to my house with peace from Thee:

O God, be merciful to me!

1.  Lord God, our Father, Thou our chiefest stay,

Thou art our souls’ delight for aye!

O hearken to our humble prayer:

Forgive our sins and us in mercy spare!

Have mercy on us, O Lord!

2.  Lord Jesus Christ, God’s true light and way,

Shepherd of souls, to Thee we pray:

Thou wast for our salvation slain,

Let not Thy death and sufferings be in vain!

Have mercy on us, O Lord!

3.  Lord God, the Holy Ghost, Thee we implore

Be with us now and evermore!

Lead us to God, His grace to win,

And leave us not to perish in our sin!

Have mercy on us, O Lord!

Original Words by Magnus Brostrup Landstad (1802-1880)

English Translation by Ole G. Belsheim (1861-1925)

This is a hymn for the First Sunday of Advent in The Lutheran Hymnary.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

1.  Awake, thou that sleepest, arise from death’s slumber!

Christ on thee shall shine;

The daylight, now glowing in rays without number,

Shows mercy divine;

Repose now no longer,

Last night’s dark danger

Soon come o’er thy soul.

Awake now, arise, and be whole!

2.  In earth’s vale of sorrows the cold mists enshroud thee,

And tears often flow;

And suffering and grief seem the portion allowed thee

In this life below;

Yet, hear the glad message,

That rescue doth presage,

And  pardon and peace

Through Him who doth bring thee release.

3.  In earth’s dreary deserts the sharp thorns will would thee.

And rough is the way;

And often thou longest from ills that surround thee

To hasten away;

Yet, cease now thy sadness,

God’s springtime of gladness

Through Christ thou shalt see:

Awake, for He calleth to thee!

4.  O lift up thine eyes now with hope unto heaven,

The daybreak is here:

Thy Lord let all blessing and honor be given,

Go meet Him with cheer;

When hearts are convicted

Of sin, and afflicted

His welcome will rise

In anthems of praise to the skies.

5.  To God be all glory, who graciously sendeth

From heaven His light;

The way and the truth my soul findeth,

And peace is my right.

O Christ, shine upon us!

From death Thou hast won us

To follow, O Lord,

Thy steps in the light of Thy word.

1.  There many shall come from the east and the west

And sit at the feast of salvation

With Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the blest,

Obeying the Lord’s invitation.

Have mercy upon us, O Jesus!

2.  But they who have always resisted His grace

And on their own virtue depended,

Shall then be condemn’d and cast out from His face,

Eternally lost and unfriended.

Have mercy upon us, Lord Jesus.

3.  O may we all hear when our Shepherd doth call,

In accents persuasive and tender,

That while here is time we make haste one and all

And find Him, our mighty defender.

Have mercy upon us, Lord Jesus.

4.  God grant that I may of His infinite love,

Remain in His merciful keeping;

And sit with the King at His table above,

When here in the grave I am sleeping.

Have mercy upon us, Lord Jesus.

5.  All trials are then like a dream that is past,

Forgotten all trouble and sorrow;

All questions and doubts have been answer’d at last;

Then dawneth eternity’s morrow.

Have mercy upon us, O Jesus!
