    Verse 1
    Shine Thou upon us, Lord,
    True Light of men, today;
    And through the written word
    Thy very self display;
    That so, from hearts which burn
    With gazing on Thy face,
    The little ones may learn
    The wonders of Thy grace.

    Verse 2
    Breathe Thou upon us, Lord,
    Thy Spirit's living flame,
    That so with one accord
    Our lips may tell Thy name;
    Give Thou the hearing ear,
    Fix Thou the wandering thought,
    That those we teach may hear
    The great things Thou hast wrought.

    Verse 3
    Speak Thou for us, O Lord,
    In all we say of Thee;
    According to Thy word
    Let all our teaching be;
    That so Thy lambs may know
    Their own true Sheperd's voice,
    Where'er He leads them go,
    And in His love rejoice.

    Verse 4
    Live Thou within us, Lord;
    Thy mind and will be ours;
    Be Thou beloved, adored,
    And served, with all our powers;
    That so our lives may teach
    Thy children what Thou art,
    And plead, by more than speech,
    For Thee with every heart.
