Lyrics

Teach us, Lord, to love Thee,
As Thy face we seek;
We would be like Jesus,
Loving, gentle, meek.

Refrain

Teach us, Lord, to love Thee,
Lead us all the way;
Show us how to please Thee,
Keep us lest we stray.

Teach us this sweet lesson,
Best of all below;
Make us like our Savior,
Who has loved us so.

Refrain

Daily, daily growing
Like our Lord on high,
We shall see and know Him,
Yonder by and by.

Refrain

Teach us, Lord, to love Thee;
Then, with hearts so true,
We shall love our neighbor,
As we ought to do.
