Lyrics

  1. 1. Savior, may I learn to love thee,
    Walk the path that thou hast shown,
    Pause to help and lift another,
    Finding strength beyond my own.
    Savior, may I learn to love thee—
    Lord, I would follow thee.
  2. 2. Who am I to judge another
    When I walk imperfectly?
    In the quiet heart is hidden
    Sorrow that the eye can’t see.
    Who am I to judge another?
    Lord, I would follow thee.
  3. 3. I would be my brother’s keeper;
    I would learn the healer’s art.
    To the wounded and the weary
    I would show a gentle heart.
    I would be my brother’s keeper—
    Lord, I would follow thee.
  4. 4. Savior, may I love my brother
    As I know thou lovest me,
    Find in thee my strength, my beacon,
    For thy servant I would be.
    Savior, may I love my brother—
    Lord, I would follow thee.
