HYMN 591

H.C 346 5.6s (FE 617)
"And I will be with thy mouth
and teach thee what thou shall say”
 - Exd. 4:12

1.  SHINE Thou upon us, Lord 
     True Light of men, to-day

     And through the written word 

     Thy very self display

     That so, from hearts which burn 

     With gazing on Thy face

     The little ones may learn 

     The wonders of Thy grace.

2.  Breathe Thou upon us, Lord

     Thy Spirit's living flame

     That so with one accord

     Our lips may tell Thy name

     Give Thou the hearing ear

     Fix Thou the wandering thought 

     That those we teach may hear

     The great things Thou has wrought.

3.  Speak Thou for us, O Lord

     In all we say of Thee

     According to Thy word

     Let all our teaching be

     That so Thy lambs may know 

     Their own true Shepherd's voice 

     Where'er He leads them go

     And in His love rejoice.

4.  Live Thou within us, Lord

     Thy mind and will be ours

     Be Thou belov'd, adored

     And served, with all our pow‘rs 

     That so our lives may teach

     Thy children what Thou art,

     And plead, by more than speech,

     For Thee with every heart.  Amen
