L.M.

1
Great All in all, eternal Power,
On us Thy richest blessings shower;
Inspire our hearts with ardent zeal,
And let us now Thy presence feel.

2
Shed on our school Thy heavenly light,
And give it favour in Thy sight:
May each young learner early find
A Saviour merciful and kind.

3
Direct their footsteps, God of grace;
Teach them to seek their Maker’s face;
Let them Thy great salvation know,
And be their portion here below.

4
And O may we, who teach them, share
In the almighty Father’s care:
In zeal and love may we be found,
And in each Christian grace abound.

5
Thus, when the last great trump shall sound,
To call us from beneath the ground,
May we, with these dear children, rise
To dwell for ever in the skies.
