Teach Me, My God and King
Martin Carthy sang the hymn Teach Me, My God and King in 1966 on Sydney Carter’s Songs From ABC Television’s “Hallelujah” album.
Martin Carthy sings Teach Me, My God and King
Teach me, teach me my God and King,
In all things thee to see,
And what I do in anything
To do it as for thee.
A man that looks, that looks on glass,
On it may stay his eye;
Or if he pleaseth, through it pass,
And then the heav’n espy.
A servant with this clause, this clause
Makes drudgery divine:
Who sweeps a room, as for thy laws,
Makes that and the action fine.
This is the stone, the famous stone
That turneth all to gold;
For that which God doth touch and own
Cannot for less be told.
