Saviour Teach Me Day by Day

This is for Pamela, who asked if anyone knew this song from her childhood (wise words for all of us, not just children!):

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.

If you go to CyberHymnal and search in the Titles, you can find so many of these wonderful songs of faith (plus listen to a little canned music to hear the tune!)

Thank you for sending us the words Cary.

I tried emailing you again, but I get an error message. It doesn't seem like any of my messages are reaching you :(
