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.
