Young Woman:
Teach me the things that a girl needs to know, the lessons I can't learn alone
For someday I know that a woman must reap the harvest my childhood has sown
Show me the harvest I'm planting, and somehow, along with the rest,
I'll be learning to love you while you learn to love me
That's the lesson that I love best.

Leader:
Help me remember the faith of a child, and teach me again of my youth
Show me the way I may speak to your heart and lead you to love of the truth
I'll learn from your innocent wisdom, and somehow, along with the rest,
I'll be learning to love you while you learn to love me
That's the lesson that I love best.

YW:
I may not remember a thing you say
But I'll treasure the things you are
I may not grow wise in the ways of the world
But the lessons I learn will be greater by far.

Both:
Gladly I'll teach you, and gladly I'll hear whatever your heart has to tell
Learning the lessons I need most to know, and loving the learning so well
Gratefully growing together, and somehow, along with the rest
I'll be learning to love you while you learn to love me.
(YW): That's the lesson that I love best.
'(Both): The lesson that I love best.
