Teacher, Teacher




Teacher, teacher, teacher, teach me now
Teacher, teacher, teacher, guide me now
Teacher, teacher, teacher, show the way
You are my light
You are my guide.

Teacher, teacher, teacher, comfort me
Give your listening ears when I cry
Help me find the strength in what I can
You are my help
You are my guide.

Teacher, teacher, teacher, build me up
When I do wrong, show me what is right
Teacher, teacher, teacher, let us laugh
You are my friend
You are my guide.

Love Beyond Measure

Who can fathom its depth
when it touches the heart
to rejoice and mourn?

Who can conquer its height
when it elevates one to
the apex of delirium and success?

Who can hoard its fragrance
when to hide it
murders the beauty
of both man and woman?
