Oh, fill me with Thy presence, Lord,

That love may shine through me

To quicken that same presence, Lord,

In all whose eyes can see.

 

Oh, fill me with Thy presence, Lord,

That Wisdom may be mine

To share Thy light with all who need

To let their own light shine.

 

Oh, fill me with Thy presence, Lord,

To guide what power I wield,

That it may ever strengthen good,

And be from ill a shield.

 

"Oh, fill me with Thy presence, Lord--"

But need I longer wait?

Thy presence hath been given me,

To live and radiate!
