68. Oh, Give Me Samuel's Ear

1
Oh, give me Samuel's ear!
 
The open ear, O Lord,
 
Alive and quick to hear
 
Each whisper of Thy Word;
 
Like him to answer at Thy call,
 
And to obey Thee first of all.
2
Oh, give me Samuel's heart!
 
A lowly heart that waits
 
Where in Thy house Thou art,
 
Or watches at Thy gates,
 
By day and night, a heart that still
 
Moves at the breathing of Thy will.
