Teach me to love

Teach me to love, dear Lord, teach me to love
those who love me, yes,
but also those who don't
teach me to love dear Lord, teach me to love
those who smile at me,
but especially those who won't.

Teach me to love, dear Lord, teach me to love
those who uphold me before you
but also, those that add to my plight
teach me to love, dear Lord, teach me to love
those who belong to you,
but especially those who just won't see the light.

Teach me to love, dear Lord, teach me to love
not just when I feel like it,
but also when I don't
teach me to love, dear Lord, teach me to love
not for what I can gain in return,
but even when my heart's torn.

Teach me to love, dear Lord, teach me to love
not just on lovers' day,
but on other days too
teach me to love, dear Lord, teach me to love
not just 'cause it's the right thing to do,
but 'cause your word says to.
