Hymn/Song Information

When Jesus dwelt in mortal clay What




When Jesus dwelt in mortal clay,
What were His works, from day to day,
But miracles of power and grace,
That spread salvation through our race?


At his command, from rayless night
Redeemed, the blind receive their sight,
The deaf in rapture hear His voice,
The dumb in songs of praise rejoice.


Teach us, O Lord, to keep in view
Thy pattern, and Thy steps pursue;
Let alms bestowed, let kindness done,
Be witnessed by each rolling sun.


That man may last, but never lives,
Who much receives, but nothing gives,
Whom none can love, whom none can thank;
Creation's blot, creation's blank.


Teach us to mark, from day to day,
In generous acts our radiant way,
Tread the same path our Savior trod,
The path to glory and to God.


---Alternative verses---


But he, who marks from day to day,
In generous acts his radiant way.
Treads the same path his Saviour trod,
The path to glory and to God.


The man who marks, from day to day,
In generous acts his radiant way,
Treads the same path his Saviour trod,
The path to glory and to God.
