Story behind the song
Teach Me to Love is a prayer of intercession offered to someone I admire greatly, Mother Teresa of Calcutta. When she died so soon after Princess Diana, I knew her life and death would be overshadowed but, in my heart realized how important she was and that she would be praying for us in heaven. I want her to teach me how to love the Body of Christ as she did.
Lyrics
Teach Me to Love (Pray for Me, Mother) (dedicated to Mother Teresa 9/5/97) Teach me to love, teach me to serve And may my eyes, like yours, shine at the sight Of Jesus in my neighbor Teach me to love, teach me to serve And may my heart be moved and pierced by compassion And so be compelled to reach out in love May I be like you, reaching out to hold The image of God in my hands Teach me to love, teach me to serve And may I never see rich nor poor Age nor race, just a precious gift from God Teach me to love, teach me to serve And may I never seek reward nor glory But only because I’m in love with Jesus Christ May I be like you, with a single heart Lost inside an ocean of love for the Lord May I be like you, reaching out to hold The image of God in my hands May I be like you, learning from the poor Shedding all my wealth for the love of Jesus Christ May I be like you, reaching out to hold The image of God in my hands
