Teach me O LORD to generously give....

Post by Guest » Thu Aug 21, 2008 3:29 pm

I sang this as a child in the Catholic church. Does anyone know the title or the rest of the lyrics? Here is all I remember....

Teach me O LORD to generously give
And let me learn unselfishly to live....

Even in weakness give me strength to spare....

And when my work is through and life is past
LORD take me home to heaven and Thee at last.

I, too, sang this as a child in our Catholic church. Nice recording -- thanks!

Prayer for a Perfect Life
William Cardinal O'Connell

Teach me, dear Lord, to generously give,
and let me learn unselfishly to live.
Even in weakness, give me strength to spend –
all for Thy glory, even to the end!

Teach me to suffer, heedless of the pain.
Help me to labor, mindless of the gain.
Aid me to fight for truth, without a fear!
Keep strong my hope, though not a way is clear.

Teach me to toil, without a care for rest.
Show me in trial that Thy way is best.
And, when my work is done, and life is past,
Lord, take me home to heaven and Thee at last!
