Teach Me How to Love

Read my corresponding
blog post

More and more I see how your love never fails
It just appears when I have strayed
And comes in measures far beyond what I'm deserving
A heart that beats with great compassion
Pulsing our lives with hope
A love that just begins when human loving ends
A love I want to know

Teach me how to love the way that you love
To pour out my life for another
Teach me how to care the way that you care
I've got so much to learn from you

More and more I hear what you're saying to me
If I speak with tongues of angels and I have not love
I'm just a crashing cymbal
A love that's kind and not self-seeking
Keeping no record of wrongs
And when the music's gone, love goes on
Remembering the song

Teach me how to love the way that you love
To pour out my life for another
Teach me how to care the way that you care
I've got so much to learn from you

Love believes all things, love endures all things
Gives and doesn't count the cost
Will not rush to anger when it's crossed

Let me share the Father's love with his daughters
Let me show the Father's heart with his sons
Let me share the Father's love with his children
Let me show the Father's heart to everyone

Teach me how to love the way that you love
To pour out my life for another
Teach me how to care the way that you care
I've got so much to learn from you

Lyrics by Stormie Omartian, Recorded by Debby Boone on Choose Life (1985)
