Lyrics

Teach Me O Lord

Words: Jo­seph P. Hol­brook, cir­ca 1878.

Music: Bi­shop (Hol­brook), Jo­seph P. Hol­brook, cir­ca 1878 (MI­DI, score).

Teach me, O Lord, Thy way of truth,

And from it I will not depart;
That I may steadfastly obey,
Give me an understanding heart.

In Thy commandments make me walk,
For in the law my joy shall be;
Give me a heart that loves Thy will,
From discontent and envy free.

Turn Thou my eyes from vanity,
And cause me in Thy ways to tread;
O let Thy servant prove Thy Word,
And thus to godly fear be led.

Turn Thou away reproach and fear,
Thy righteous judgments I confess;
To know Thy precepts I desire,
Revive me in Thy righteousness.
