GOD THE ONLY TRUE TEACHER, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: The lord is my light; by his teaching I learn
Last Line: That can give me instruction, and make himself known.
Subject(s): God; Learning; Teaching & Teachers; Educators; Professors


THE Lord is my light; by his teaching I learn,
With a right understanding, his works to discern:
While I dwell in his presence 'tis then that I live,
And enjoy a content which he only can give:
In all other things I have labour'd to find
That truth which might fill an intelligent mind;
But I labour'd in vain, for it is He alone
That can give me instruction, and make himself known.
