Teach Me To Love

Teach Me To Love
Lyrics by Diana Knight Wheatley
Music by Kevin Cox

Today I have but one petition Lord
Teach me to love
Teach me to love
Teach me to love

Indeed it is my greatest and my only need
Teach me to love not those who first loved me
But all the world with that rare purity
Which holds in its embrace humanity
And only seems to see the good in all
Reflected Lord from Thee

And teach me Father how to love the most
Those who most stand in need of love
Who toil along the road with footsteps slow
And hearts more heavy than the world can know
I want to bring them comfort and relief
To put my hand in theirs and at their side
Walk softly on a faithful fearless guide

Help me to seek
And find that which they thought was lost
To speak such words of cheer that as we pass along
The wilderness shall blossom
Shall blosson into song

Teach me to love
Indeed it is my greatest and my only need
Thou knowest God above
My one desire now
Teach me to love
