Hitherto the Lord has brought us,
Children, teachers, on our way,
Our beloved school maintaining
Even to the present day.
God hath helped us, would we say.
He has given a place for worship,
May we love these pastures green,
May we heed the sacred Scriptures
Where the Son of God is seen.
Hitherto our help He’s been.
In the future yet before us,
We shall need His helping hand,
Still to wait for His appearing
And to go at His command.
Only by His help we stand.
And when death our souls shall summon,
May we be prepared before,
Washed in Jesus’ blood, and landed
Safely on the heavenly shore.
Hitherto and evermore!
