 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.

 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!

 3.  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.

 4.  So shalt Thou, Lord, from me, e'en me,
        Receive the glory due;
     And so shall I begin on earth
        The song forever new.
