8.7.4.

1
Hitherto the Lord has brought us,
Children, teachers, on our way,
Our beloved school maintaining
Even to the present day.
Ebenezer!
God hath helped us, would we say.

2
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.
Ebenezer!
Hitherto our help He’s been.

3
In the future yet before us,
We shall need His helping hand,
Still to wait for His appearing
And to go at His command.
Ebenezer!
Only by His help we stand.

4
And when death our souls shall summon,
May we be prepared before,
Washed in Jesus’ blood, and landed
Safely on the heavenly shore.
Ebenezer!
Hitherto and evermore!
