Teach me Thy way, O Lord

Teach me Thy way, O Lord,
  Teach me Thy way;
Thy gracious aid afford,
  Teach me Thy way.
Help me to walk aright;
More by faith, less by sight;
Lead me with heav’nly light,
  Teach me Thy way.
When doubts and fears arise,
  Teach me Thy way;
When storms o’erspread the skies,
  Teach me Thy way.
Shine through the cloud and rain,
Through sorrow, toil, and pain;
Make Thou my pathway plain,
  Teach me Thy way.
Long as my life shall last,
  Teach me Thy way;
Where’er my lot be cast,
  Teach me Thy way.
Until the race is run,
Until the journey’s done,
Until the crown is won,
  Teach me Thy way.

Fifty-four years ago, my husband and I included this beautiful hymn in our wedding. It's been our prayer throughout the years, and God is still teaching us his ways.

I first learned this hymn in Hungarian when I was about 7. After more than 55 years, it remains one of my favorites. I am familiar with 8 verses and each one gives me so much comfort.

"Szívemet hozzád emelem,

És benned bízom, Uram;

És meg nem szégyeníttetem,

Nem nevet senki rajtam,

Mert szégyent nem vallanak,

Akik hozzád esedeznek,

Azok pironkodjanak,

Akik hitetlenül élnek."

Along with other contributors I learned this at St Gabriel's Church camp. It is also my "going home" hymn when the crown is won.

Came to me this morning when things of the environment got to me. Help me to walk aright, more by faith, less by sight. Lead me with heavenly light.

One line of this hymn came to me in my waking moments, after a disappointing evening of wrestling with my still present selfish tendencies. Finally, the hymn title came. The words were my hearts cry. Thank you for this ministry to the body of Christ.. today to me!

I was in prayer when this lovely song/hymn came to mind. Resonates so well with my prayer at this time.."Teach me the way". Am so thankful the LORD gave us this hymn... may it minister to Many, many Others, as it has done in the past... Praise the LORD!! Amen.. be blessed!


We love you Triune God

Wonderful hymn!

My Uncle sang this in a Christian Band many years ago. Family members, including myself, going through so many health struggles at this time and, on waking during the night, unable to sleep, this hymn came into my mind. I had to look up the words as haven’t heard it play for ages but gives so much hope and very inspirational. Thank you❤️
