Hymn/Song Information

Teach me to live Tis easier far to die




Teach me to live ! Tis easier far to die-
Gently and silently to pass away
On earth s long night to close the heavy eye,
And waken in the glorious realms of day.


Teach me that harder lesson how to live,
To serve Thee in the darkest paths of life ;
Arm me for conflict now, fresh vigour give,
And make me more than conqueror in the strife.


Teach me to live Thy purpose to fulfil,
Bright for Thy glory let my taper shine ;
Each day renew, remould the stubborn will,
Closer round Thee my heart's affections twine.


Teach me to live ! No idler let me be,
But in Thy service hand and heart employ,
Prepared to do Thy bidding cheerfully
Be this my highest and my holiest joy.


Teach me to live my daily cross to bear,
Nor murmur though I bend beneath its load,
Only be with me ; let me feel Thee near,
Thy smile sheds gladness on the darkened road.


Teach me to live and find my life in Thee,
Looking from earth and earthly things away,
Let me not falter, but untiringly
Press on, and gain new strength and power each day.
