Christ My Song - 538
Thou know'st my longings to be taught of thee - Who teacheth like him? (Horatius Bonar/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
Who teacheth like him?
1. Thou know'st my longings to be taught of thee;
all human teaching find I dark and vain:
teach me, O Lord, and then shall I be taught
to know thyself, – this is my joy and gain. PDF - Midi
2. Unteach me all the errors I have learnt
in earthly schools; forgive self-will and pride:
I would unlearn all falsehood, learn the truth,
and with thy truth alone be satisfied.
3. O Truth of truth! to thee, my Lord, I come;
teach me, oh teach, as thou alone canst do;
Spirit of truth, come down and fill my soul,
fill it with wisdom and with gladness too, –
4. the gladness of a glorious certainty,
concerning him who lived and died and rose;
this, this is true, should all else prove a lie,
and in this truth my spirit finds repose.
Horatius Bonar, Hymns of Faith and Hope III, 1878, 126-127.
