Teach Me to Love

Teach me to love,
    Forget illusive wrongs;
Teach me to praise
    With grateful, joyous songs;
Teach me to think
    A gracious, kindly way,
Teach me, dear God,
    In Love alone to stay.

Teach me to love,
    So little children's eyes
May lighten up
    With confidential joys;
Teach me to be
    Compassionate and just,
Teach me, dear God,
    In Love alone to trust.

Teach me to love,
    And like the Master see;
Teach me to give
    Of all Thou givest me;
Teach me to know
    The truth Thy Word revealed,
For by this truth
    All error's claims are healed.
