365. O Thou whose feet have climbed life's hill

C.M.

Dundee:

Scottish Psalter, 1615

Louis F. Benson, 1894

O Thou whose feet have climbed life's hill,

And trod the path of youth,

Our Savior and our Brother still,

Now lead us into truth.

The call is thine: be thou the Way,

And give us men, to guide;

Let wisdom broaden with the day,

Let human faith abide.

Who learn of thee, the truth shall find;

Who follow, gain the goal:

With reverence crown the earnest mind,

And speak within the soul.

Awake the purpose high which strives,

And, falling, stands again;

Confirm the will of eager lives

To quit themselves like men:

Thy life the bond of fellowship,

Thy love the law that rules;

Thy Name, proclaimed by every lip,

The Master of our schools.

Amen.
