We build our school on thee, O Lord

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;
with these we pray
thy Spirit may
enrich and bless our school alway.

We work together in thy sight,
we live together in thy love;
guide thou our faltering steps aright,
and lift our thoughts to heaven above:
dear Lord, we pray
thy Spirit may
be present in our school alway.

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:
dear Lord, we pray
thy Spirit may
be present in our school alway.

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:
and so we pray
thy Spirit may
be present in our school alway.
