Not to be sung, since the meter has been changed, but to be a conversation with god, expressing my thoughts and prayers

Speak, Lord, In the Stillness Original words by E. May Grimes

Speak, Lord, In the stillness, while I wait with You,
 My heart is hushed to listen in expectancy.
 Holy Master, speak in this quiet hour.
 Let me see your face Lord, feel your touch of power,
 For the words you speak are life indeed.
 Feed my spirit with your living bread from heaven.
 I have yielded everything to you, I am not my own.
 In joyful, glad surrender I am yours alone.
 Speak and I will hear you, do not be silent, Lord,
 My soul waits on you for the life-giving word.
 Fill me with the knowledge of your glorious will, 
 Fulfill in me all your own good pleasure.

If Thou But Suffer God to Guide Thee Original words by Georg Neumark, Catherine Winkworth, Tr.

If you allow God to guide you and depend on Him in each need,
 He’ll give you strength, whatever happens to you, and carry you through the evil days.
 The one who trusts in God’s unchanging love builds on the rock that nothing can move.
 My restless heart, obey by being still and wait in cheerful hope,
 Be content to receive whatever His gracious will and discerning love has sent.
 Don’t for a minute doubt that our inmost wants are known to Him who chose us 
for His own.
 Sing, pray, and never leave His ways, but do your part faithfully.
 Trust His rich promises of grace and you will see them fulfilled in you.
 God has never abandoned anyone in need who trusted in Him.
