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.

“Have Thine Own Way”

Have Thine own way, Lord! Have Thine own way!
Thou art the Potter, I am the clay.
Mold me and make me after Thy will,
While I am waiting, yielded and still.

Have Thine own way, Lord! Have Thine own way!
Search me and try me, Master, today!
Whiter than snow, Lord, wash me just now,
As in Thy presence humbly I bow.

Have Thine own way, Lord! Have Thine own way!
Wounded and weary, help me, I pray!
Power, all power, surely is Thine!
Touch me and heal me, Savior divine.

Have Thine own way, Lord! Have Thine own way!
Hold o’er my being absolute sway!
Fill with Thy Spirit ’till all shall see
Christ only, always, living in me.
