Sheet Music:




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

Not for the lip of praise alone,
Nor even the heart to praise your Name.
I ask you for a life made up
Of praise in ev 'ry part;
A life of praise, Lord,
In each part.

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

So shall you, Lord from me, from me
Receive the glory due your Name.
And so shall I begin on earth
The song forever new.
Receive from me, Lord,
Glory due.

So shall each hour of day or night
With sacredness be fully filled.
But all my life, in ev 'ry step,
Be fellowship with thee.
In day or night, Lord,
You're with me.
