Give Me An Understanding Heart – Anton Rubinstein

Give Me An Understanding Heart
Music by Anton Rubinstein
Lyrics by Carl Fischer

Give me, O Lord, I pray, an understanding heart, that I may know
Thy love and share it with thy children;
O let my words confess
Thy glorious works and wisdom,
And let my life show forth the bounty of Thy goodness.
For all thy blessings, Lord, I praise Thy glorious name;
I praise Thee evermore for all Thy kindness.
In showing love to all, I show my love for Thee;
In living love, I give my love to Thee.

Give me, O Lord, I pray, an understanding heart, that I may know
Thy love and share it with thy children;
O let Thy love shine forth in all I think and say.
O let Thy love appear in all I do;
Thy love shall ever be my shield and stay,
To guide me through the gloom to cloudless day.
O give me of Thy wisdom,
Lord, that I may ever glorify
Thy name forevermore.
