Uphold Your Servant, Blessed Lord – Don Fortner
(Tune: The Doxology -- LM )
1. Uphold Your servant, blessed Lord.
Enable him to preach Your Word,
Proclaiming here most heav’nly things,
Concerning Christ, the King of kings.
2. O give him clear, celestial views
Of Christ and the blest gospel news,
O flood his heart! His soul inflame,
As he now points us to the Lamb!
3. Fill him with mercy, grace and love,
Passion and power from above. –
Speak through him, Lord, and we’ll rejoice
In hearing our dear Savior’s voice!
4. O clothe Your Word with sov’reign power,
And this shall be a blessed hour!
Awake the dead! Revive our souls!
And make each wounded spirit whole!
