Teach Us O Lord!

The way, the truth and the life!
The way, the truth and the life!

Teach us O Lord, to hate our sin,
To see the lawlessness it is;
Our greatest enemy within,
To loathe and flee from every vice.

Teach us O Lord, Thy hate for sin,
The untold evil in each fault;
Against Thy holiness Divine,
Worthy of darkness and torment.

Teach us O Lord, to flee from sin,
To see the venom, burning sores;
To see the evil, sinful sin,
And that before Thy wrath outpours.

Teach us O Lord, to run to Christ,
His wounded side and piercêd hands;
Who lived and died to pay the price,
To break the power of evil’s bands.

(Tune: Rimington; LM)
