5377. O Thou Great Teacher from the Skies

1. O Thou great teacher from the skies,
Who lived and died for men;
Teach us with Thee to sympathize,
And be as Thou wast then.

2. It was the glory of Thy heart,
Whate’er Thou hadst to give;
For others’ sufferings to impart,
For others’ good to live.

3. Be Thou in us a living soul;
Be Thou our spirit’s power;
Its secret thought, its life’s control,
To guide it every hour.

4. W need like Thee a spirit true,
A just and generous mind,
Which seeks, in all it has to do,
The good of all mankind.
