Hear our Prayer: Horatius Bonar about Praise

Much can be learned from reading the prayers of others who have spent time with our Lord in the ‘Prayer Closet’ during their earthly journey. This series, Hear our Prayer, gives us a glimpse into the prayer lives of saints who have gone before us. May this prayer and hymn by Horatius Bonar inspire and encourage us to fill every part of our lives with praise.

 

Horatius Bonar – About praise

Fill thou my life, O Lord my God,
In ev’ry part with praise,
That my whole being may proclaim
Thy Being and Thy ways.

 

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:

 

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

 

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.

 

So shall no part of day nor night
From sacredness be free,
But all my life, in every step,
Be fellowship with Thee.
