654. Saviour, teach me, day by day

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.
