Savior, Teach Me Day By Day

[119 words]

Savior, teach me day by day
love’s sweet lesson to obey,
sweeter lesson cannot be,
loving him who first loved me.

With a child’s glad heart of love
at thy bidding may I move,
prompt to serve and follow thee,
loving him who first loved me.

Teach me thus thy steps to trace,
strong to follow in thy grace,
learning how to love from thee,
loving him who first loved me.

Love in loving finds employ,
in obedience all her joy;
ever new that joy will be,
loving him who first loved me.

Thus may I rejoice to show
that I feel the love I owe;
singing, till thy face I see,
of his love who first loved me.

Jane Eliza Leeson
1807-1881
