1 Teach me Thy will, O Lord, teach me Thy way;
Teach me to know Thy Word, teach me to pray.
Whate'er seems best to Thee, that be my earnest plea,
So that Thou drawest me closer each day.
2 Teach me Thy wondrous grace, boundless and free;
Lord, let Thy blessed face shine upon me.
Heal Thou sin's every smart, dwell Thou within my heart;
Grant that I never part, Savior, from Thee.
3 Teach me by pain Thy power, teach me by love;
Teach me to know each hour Thou art above.
Teach me as seemeth best in Thee to find sweet rest;
Leaning upon Thy breast, all doubt remove.
4 Teach Thou my lips to sing, my heart to praise;
Be Thou my Lord and King thro' all my days.
Teach Thou my soul to cry, Be Thou, dear Savior, nigh,
Teach me to live, to die, saved by Thy grace.
