Teach Me to Walk in the Light

Teach me to walk in the light of his love;

Teach me to pray to my Father above;

Teach me to know of the things that are right;

Teach me, teach me to walk in the light.

Come, little child,
and together we’ll learn

Of his commandments, that
we may return

Home to his presence, to live
in his sight

Always, always to walk in the light.

Father in Heaven, we thank
thee this day

For loving guidance to
show us the way.

Grateful, we praise thee with
songs of delight!

Gladly, gladly we’ll walk
in the light.
