Teach Me To Abide
by Russell Kelfer

 

Oh, dear Father, precious Friend;
Teach me to abide.
Take me in your tender arms,
There to safely hide.

Let your heart flow into mine,
Let my will subside.
May your every joy be mine;
Teach me to abide.

'Till our hearts but beat as one,
Purge from me all pride.
Oh, dear God, I've but one prayer:
Teach me to abide.
