28. Gratitude for the early Knowledge of God.

Among the gifts thy hands bestow
Each day and hour on me,
'Tis not the least, O Lord, to know
That they all come from Thee.

How Joyfully each day I ought
Thy precepts to fulfil,
Since I have been so early taught
To do thy gracious will!

I cannot tell thee what my heart
Would have me say to thee,
For having taught me what Thou art,
And what I ought to be.

O Saviour blest and God ador'd,
Still keep me in Thy fear;
And in my teachers' words, O Lord,
May I Thy voice revere.
