1 To learn of Jesus Christ, our Lord,
We need to read His holy Word;
The precious lessons we must heed,
And ask of Him the grace we need.

O holy Teacher, Friend and Guide,
With us for evermore abide;
May we be taught from Heav’n above
The wondrous lessons of Thy love.

2 We learn of Jesus’ wondrous birth,
His sinless life while here on earth,
We hear His invitation free,
Come, take My yoke, and learn of Me. [Refrain]

3 The Book divine, oh, may we prize,
Where all this heav’nly wisdom lies;
These lessons may we learn by heart,
And early choose the better part. [Refrain]
