Lord, Inspire the Preacher’s HeartMay 29, 2007
The briefest of Classic Materials today. A lesser known hymn written by John Newton: Hymn 90 – “Now Lord inspire the Preacher’s Heart.” I doubt it will take off as a congregational favourite, but perhaps we preachers should learn to sing it ‘by heart.’
Now, LORD, inspire the preacher’s heart,
And teach his tongue to speak;
Food to the hungry soul impart,
And cordials to the weak.
Furnish us all with light and pow’rs
To walk in Wisdom’s ways;
So shall the benefit be ours,
And thou shalt have the praise.
