Oh! fill our hearts, Almighty King!
With gratitude to Thee,
That we Thy praise may gladly sing,
In all humility.
May we instruction now receive,
With willing heart and mind,
And all Thy laws, O God! believe,
Who art so just and kind;
Who watchest o’er our actions here,
And guardest us from ill;
Oh! teach us humbly to revere,
And bow before Thy will.
And when our souls thou callest hence
To life beyond the tomb,
May there our youth we recommence,
For everlasting bloom.

“Oh! fill our hearts, Almighty King” by an unknown author, published in 1856, appears under the subject “School Hymns” as Hymn 208 in Hymns Written for the Use of Hebrew Congregations (Penina Moïse et al., Ḳ.Ḳ.
