Blessed Savior Who Hast Taught Me

Blessèd 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.

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,

So that might and firmness gaining,
Hope in danger, joy in grief,
Now and evermore remaining
In the one and true belief,
Resting in the Savior’s merit,
Strengthened with the Spirit’s strength
With Thy saints I may inherit
All my Father’s joy at length.

Words: John Mason Neale, 1842.
Tune:O Du Liebe” Johann Thommen, 1745.
