Help Me Teach with Inspiration


Help Me Teach with Inspiration


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.
