    Help Me Teach with Inspiration

    Fervently

    1. Help me teach with inspiration;

    Grant this blessing, Lord, I pray.

    Help me lift a soul’s ambition

    To a higher, nobler way.

    2. Help me reach a friend in darkness;

    Help me guide him thru the night.

    Help me show thy path to glory

    By the Spirit’s holy light.

    3. Fill my mind with understanding;

    Tune my voice to echo thine.

    Touch my hand with gentle friendship;

    Warm my heart with love divine.

    4. Help me find thy lambs who wander;

    Help me bring them to thy keep.

    Teach me, Lord, to be a shepherd;

    Father, help me feed thy sheep.
