366. We build our school on thee, O Lord

L.M.

Sefton:

J. Baptiste Calkin, 1872

Sebastian W. Meyer, 1908

We build our school on thee, O Lord,

To thee we bring our common need;

The loving heart, the helpful word,

The tender thought, the kindly deed.

333

We work together in thy sight,

We live together in thy love;

Guide thou our faltering steps aright,

And lift our thought to heaven above.

Hold thou each hand to keep it just,

Touch thou our lips and make them pure;

If thou art with us, Lord, we must

Be faithful friends and comrades sure.

We change, but thou art still the same,

The same good Master, Teacher, Friend;

We change; but, Lord, we bear thy Name,

To journey with it to the end.

Amen.

(Land of our birth, we pledge to thee

Our love and toil in the years to be,

When we are grown and take our place

As men and women with our race.)
