Savior, Teach Me, Day By Day

A Prayerful Christian Hymn for Learning Daily Obedience

By

At times we all need some encouragement to remain steadfast in our service to the Lord. Learn to follow the Savior day by day with this prayerful Christian hymn for obedience written by Jane E. Leeson.

Savior, Teach Me, Day By Day

Savior, teach me, day by day,
Love's sweet lesson to obey;
Sweeter lesson cannot be,
Loving Him who first loved me.

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.

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.

Love in loving finds employ,
In obedience all her joy;
Ever new that joy will be,
Loving Him who first loved me.

--Jane E. Leeson, 1807-1882
