1 Lord, teach us the lesson of loving,
The very first lesson of all.
O Thou who dost love little children,
How tender and sweet is Thy call!
Now help us to hear it and give Thee,
The love Thou art asking today—
Then help us to love one another,
For this we most earnestly pray.
2 Lord, teach us the lesson of giving;
For this is the very next thing,
Our love always ought to be showing,
What offerings and fruit it can bring,
There are many who know not Thy mercy,
There are millions in darkness and woe—
Our prayers and our gifts are all needed,
And all can do something we know.
