Teach Me to Walk in the Light

Children’s Songbook of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints


Prayerfully

Optional obbligato (with verse 3) for flute or violin

1. (Child) 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.

2. (Parent) 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.

3. (Both) 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.
