"Blessed Savior, Who hast Taught Me" by John M. Neale, 1818-1866 Text From: THE LUTHERAN HYMNAL (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1941) 1. Blessed Savior, who hast taught me I should live to Thee alone, All these years Thy hand hath brought me Since I first was made Thine own. At the font my vows were spoken By my parents in the Lord; That my vows shall be unbroken At the altar I record. 2. I would trust in Thy protecting, Wholly rest upon Thine arm, Follow wholly Thy directing, O my only Guard from harm, Meet me now with Thy salvation In Thy Church's ordered way; Let me feel Thy confirmation In Thy truth and fear today. 3. So that, might and firmness gaining, Hope in danger, joy in grief, Now and evermore remaining In the one and true belief, Resting in my Savior's merit, Strengthened with Thy Spirit's strength, With Thy saints I may inherit All My Father's joy at length.This text was converted to ascii format for Project Wittenberg by Debbie Harris and is in the public domain.
