Open My Lips, O Lord!

The way, the truth and the life!
The way, the truth and the life!

Open my lips, O Lord!
In thankfulness and praise;
To Thee my awesome Saviour God,
My heart to Thee to raise.

Open my lips, O Lord!
Thy statutes to declare;
The righteous, royal law’s demands,
Thy wisdom and Thy Care.

Open my lips, O Lord!
To speak to wicked men;
And turn them to the Saviour’s blood,
To know Thy righteous Son.

Open my lips, O Lord!
Thy love’s embrace to share;
The fulness of Thy grace transcend,
Thy holy power laid bare.

Open my lips, O Lord!
One with Thy holy bride;
In unity at Thy right hand,
Before Thy throne reside.

(Tune: Trentham; Dennis; SM)
