Verse 1

Fill thou my life, O Lord my God,
In every part with praise,
That my whole being may proclaim
Thy being and thy ways.

Verse 2

Not for the lip of praise alone,
Nor e'en the praising heart,
I ask, but for a life made up
Of praise in every part:

Verse 3

Praise in the common things of life,
Its going out and in;
Praise in each duty and each deed,
However small and mean.

Verse 4

Fill every part of me with praise;
Let all my being speak
Of thee and of thy love, O Lord.
Poor though I be and weak.

Verse 5

So shalt thou, gracious Lord, from me,
e'en me,
Receive the glory due;
And so shall I begin on earth
The song for ever new.

Verse 6

So shall no part of day or night
From sacredness be free;
But all my life, in every step, Be fellowship with thee.
