2 If God would speak to me,

And say He was my friend,
How happy I should be !

O how would I attend !
The smallest sin I then should fear,

If God Almighty were so near. 3 And does He never speak ?

O yes; for in His word He bids me come and seek

The God that Samuel heard ; In almost every page I see

The God of Samuel calls to me. 4 And I beneath His care

May safely rest my head;
I know that God is there

To guard my humble bed ;
And every sin I well may fear

Since God Almighty is so near. 5 Like Samuel let me say,

Whene'er I read Thy word,
Speak, Lord, I would obey

The voice that I have heard.
And when I in Thy house appear,
Speak, for Thy servant waits to hear,
