Blessed Saviour who hast taught me




Blessed Savior,
who hast taught me
I should live to Thee alone,
All these years
Thy hand hath brought me
Since I first was made Thine own.
At the font my vows were spoken
By my parents in the Lord;
That my vows shall be unbroken
At the altar I record.


In the world would foes assail me,
Craftier, stronger, far than I;
And the strife may never fail me,
Well I know, before I die.
Therefore, Lord, I come believing
Through the prayer
of faith receiving
Strength, the Spirit's
strength, indeed.


I would trust in Thy protecting,
Wholly rest upon Thine arm,
Follow wholly Thy directing,
O my only Guard from harm,
Meet me now with Thy salvation
In Thy Church's ordered way;
Let me feel Thy confirmation
In Thy truth and fear today.


So that, might
and firmness gaining,
Hope in danger, joy in grief,
Now and evermore remaining
In the one and true belief,
Resting in my Savior's merit,
Strengthened with
Thy Spirit's strength,
With Thy saints I may inherit
All My Father's joy at length.
