 O Teach Me What it Meaneth

O teach me what it meaneth, That cross uplifted high,
With One, the Man of Sorrows, Condemned to bleed and die!
O teach me what it cost Thee To make a sinner whole;
And teach me, Saviour, teach me The value of a soul!

O teach me what it meaneth, That sacred crimson tide,
The blood and water flowing From Thine own wounded side.
Teach me that if none other Had sinned, but I alone,
Yet still Thy blood, Lord Jesus, Thine only, must atone.

O teach me what it meaneth, Thy love beyond compare,
The love that reacheth deeper Than depths of self-despair!
Yes, teach me, till there gloweth In this poor heart of mine
Some feeble, pale reflection Of that pure love of Thine.

O teach me what it meaneth, For I am full of sin,
And grace alone can reach me, And love alone can win.
O teach me, for I need Thee, I have no help beside—
The chief of all the sinners For whom the Saviour died?

O Infinite Redeemer! I bring no other plea;
Because Thou dost invite me I cast myself on Thee.
Because Thou dost accept me I love and I adore;
Because Thy love constraineth, I'll praise Thee ever more!

~Lucy A. Bennett, 1850-1927

This is one of my favorite hymns. There is so much more to understand and comprehend about Jesus Christ...Who He is, what He has done, and is doing and will do...and His infinite love for me.

 Re: O Teach Me What it Meaneth

This is just a beautiful hymn, with a haunting tune that gets into your heart and you just can't get it out again.

Oh for us to come to "know the love of Christ that passeth knowledge..." (Eph. 3.19).

"O teach me what it meaneth..." We will only come to know what it means as we come into and walk in the same love... which our Lord Jesus is committed to bringing us into.

Thanks for putting this up.

AD

O Infinite Redeemer! I bring no other plea;
Because Thou dost invite me I cast myself on Thee.
Because Thou dost accept me I love and I adore;
Because Thy love constraineth, I'll praise Thee ever more!


16That He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might by His Spirit in the inner man;

17That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,

18May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;

19And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.

20Now unto Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,

21Unto Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.
(Ephesians 3:16-21)

Amen!
