O Thou Who makest souls to shine




O Thou Who makest souls to shine
With light from brighter worlds above,
Now send Thy glistening dew divine
On all who seek a Saviorís love!


Do Thou Thy benediction give
On all who teach, on all who learn,
That all Thy Church may holier live,
And every lamp more brightly burn.


Give those that teach
pure hearts and wise,
Faith, hope, and love,
all warmed by prayer;
Themselves first training for the skies,
They best will raise their people there.


Give those, who learn, the willing ear,
The spirit meek, the guileless mind;
Such gifts will make the lowliest here
Far better than a kingdom find.


O bless the shepherd,
bless the sheep,
That guide and guided both be oneó
One in the faithful watch they keep,
Until this hurrying life be done.


If thus, good Lord, Thy grace be givín,
In Thee to live, in Thee to die,
Before we upward pass to Heavín,
We taste our immortality.
