TEACH ME TO MAGNIFY YOUR NAME
Teach me, my Savior, how to live
On earth to honor You:
Teach me to magnify Your name
In all I say, or do.
Bridle my tongue by inward grace,
That I may not complain
Against my Father's providence,
Or cause His children pain.
Jesus was thoughtful, kind and good
While He lived here below:
Enable me by deeds of love
My Savior's love to show.
Yet, Lord, I want more than a show
Of outward, moral good:
Give me a heart of love and faith,
To magnify my God.
(Tune: While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks)
