Hymn/Song Information

Teach me my God and King In all things




Teach me, my God and King,
In all things Thee to see,
And what I do in anything
To do it as for Thee.


A man that looks on glass
On it may stay his eye;
Or if he pleaseth, through it pass,
And then the heaven espy.


All may of Thee partake:
Nothing can be so mean,
Which with this tincture, “For Thy sake,”
Will not grow bright and clean.


A servant with this clause
Makes drudgery divine:
Who sweeps a room, as for Thy laws,
Makes that and the action fine.


This is the famous stone
That turneth all to gold:
For that which God doth touch and own
Cannot for less to told.
