Hymn 172 - "O teach us more of Thy blest ways,"
O teach us more of Thy blest ways,
Thou holy Lamb of God!
And fix and root us in Thy grace,
As those redeemed by blood.
O tell us often of Thy love,
Of all Thy grief and pain;
And let our hearts with joy confess
That thence comes all our gain.
For this, 0 may we freely count
Vain things of earth but dross;
The dearest object of our love,
Apart from Thee, but loss.
Engrave this deeply on our hearts
With an eternal pen,
That we may, in a fuller way,
Return Thy love again.
