Never has a man spoken the way this man speaks. John 7:46 NASB
Lord, I know You have welcomed me, for You said, “Come to Me”; I know You have a plan for me, for You said, “Follow Me”; I know You have cleansed me, for You said, “Your sins are forgiven”; I know Your will is restful for me, for You said, “Go in peace”; I know You will never leave me without Your presence, for You said, “Receive the Holy Spirit.”
Lord, no one speaks with the power of Your voice—You said “Come forth” and the dead lived again; You said, “Rise, take up your bed and walk” and the feeble could stand to their feet; You said, “Go wash in the Pool of Siloam” and clear images flooded darkened eyes.
Lord, no one speaks with the comfort of Your voice—it calls me as a shepherd to its lost lamb; it soothes me as a mother to her hurting child; it woos me as a bridegroom to his bride; it reassures me as a friend to his companion.
Lord, no one speaks with the clarity of Your voice—You speak words of light to shine upon my path; You speak words of nourishment to feed my soul; You speak words of truth to make me wise; You speak words of vitality to make me whole.
Lord, speak, for your servant hears.
You who speak love, my heart is listening; You who speak hope, my heart is trusting, You who speak life, my heart is receiving.
