1 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.

2 Teach us this sweet lesson, best of all below;
Make us like our Savior, who has loved us so. [Refrain]

3 Daily, daily growing like our Lord on high,
We shall see and know Him, yonder by and by. [Refrain]

4 Teach us, Lord, to love Thee; then, with hearts so true,
We shall love our neighbor, as we ought to do. [Refrain]
