Teach Me to Pray, Lord


Words by Albert S. Reitz, 1925
Tune: REITZ by Albert S. Reitz, 1925
Key signature: C major (no sharps or flats)
Meter: 9.9.9.9. with Refrain
1. Teach me to pray, Lord, teach me to pray; This is my heart-cry day unto day; I long to know Thy will and Thy way; Teach me to pray, Lord, teach me to pray.
Refrain: Living in Thee, Lord, and Thou in me; Constant abiding, this is my plea; Grant me Thy power, boundless and free: Power with men and power with Thee.
2. Power in prayer, Lord, power in prayer, Here ’mid earth’s sin and sorrow and care; Men lost and dying, souls in despair; O give me power, power in prayer!
3. My weakened will, Lord, Thou canst renew; My sinful nature Thou canst subdue; Fill me just now with power anew, Power to pray and power to do!
4. Teach me to pray, Lord, teach me to pray; Thou art my pattern, day unto day; Thou art my surety, now and for aye; Teach me to pray, Lord, teach me to pray.
