1  Saviour, teach me, day by day,
Love's sweet lesson to obey;
Sweeter lesson cannot be,
Loving him who first loved me.

2  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.


3  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.

4  Love in loving finds employ,
In obedience all her joy;
Ever new that joy will be,
Loving him who first loved me.


5  Thus may I rejoice to show
That I feel the love I owe;
Singing, till thy face I see,
Loving him who first loved me.
