Savior, thou hast called; and gladly will I seek to make thy might and mercy known
I shall speak thy peace, and may my willing voice be unto men an echo of thine own
Tune thou my spirit unto thine
Teach me to sing thy love divine
Thus as thy witness will I stand
Lord, make me an instrument in thy hand

By thy spirit's power, direct me hour by hour to those who wander from thy fold
May I lead them home, and may my words of hope be unto them an echo of thine own
Teach thou my heart to freely serve
Teach me to do thy works of love
Thus as thy witness will I stand
Lord, make me an instrument in thy hand

Cast from my heart the fear of man; teach me to trust in thee alone
'Til every impulse of my will becomes an echo of thine own

By thy spirit's light, grant me thy clearer sight, to seek thy lambs where e'er they stray
Echoing thy call, thou Shepherd of us all, 'til every voice re-echos in thy praise
Tune thou my song to tell thy glory
My every anthem to adore thee
Thus as thy witness will I stand
Lord, make me an instrument in thy hand.
