    Teacher, Do You Love Me?

    Sustained

    1. (Child) Teacher*, do you love me?

    Teacher*, will you care for me?

    Even if I turn away, or disobey, or go astray,

    Then will you love me still?

    2. (Child) Teacher*, will you teach me?

    Teacher*, help me choose the right.

    When I do not understand

    the Lord’s command, please take my hand

    And lead me safely with his light.

    [Chorus]

    (First time child only.)

    I need your love, I need your light

    To show me how to be like Jesus.

    The Savior’s love will light the path

    To lead me safely home.

    3. (Teacher) Oh yes, my child, I love you.

    My child, I’ll always care for you.

    And with the Savior as our guide,

    I’ll share the light I feel inside,

    And you will feel his love for you.

    4. (Teacher) Oh, yes, my child, I’ll teach you.

    My child, I’ll help you choose the right.

    And when you do not understand

    The Lord’s command, I’ll take your hand,

    And he will lead us with his light.

    [Chorus]

    (Second time duet.)

    I need your love, I need your light

    To show me how to be like Jesus.

    The Savior’s love will light the path

    To lead us safely home.
