Precious Jesus, teach me how I ought to pray;
For I know, dear Savior, there’s no other way.
How my wretched pride, Lord, makes such empty words –
Will not let my heart’s need at Your throne be heard.
How my wretched pride, Lord, makes such empty words –
Will not let my heart’s need at Your throne be heard.

Precious Jesus, show me just how poor I am.
May I never be, Lord, one who is lukewarm.
Give me deeper hunger; give me greater thirst,
So that I may ever seek God’s kingdom first.
Give me deeper hunger; give me greater thirst,
So that I may ever seek God’s kingdom first.

Precious Jesus, teach me how to walk in prayer;
Every law You give me, help me keep with care.
Make me truly earnest; Lord, renew my mind!
That by death to self-life, I new life might find.
Make me truly earnest; Lord, renew my mind!
That by death to self-life, I new life might find.
