1 Jesus, Saviour, unto Thy throne we are sending this pray’r,
Teach us, teach us, teach us Thy wonderful work to share;
We would seek noble and glorious things,
Highest that life affords;
We would gain wisdom and all that it brings,
All that Thy grace accords.
Teach us, teach us, teach us the holy desire of our quest,
Teach us, teach us, teach us in all things to choose the best.
2 Jesus, Saviour, all that we seek is embodied in Thee,
Teach us, teach us loyal disciples of Thine to be;
Thus from the myriad lessons of life,
Ever we’ll choose the best;
Thus shall success be our prize in the strife,
Crowning our earthly quest. [Refrain]
Edith Sanford Tillotson was born and lived her entire life in Corona, New York. She wrote hymns for children as well as poems and librettos.
