School Song and Hymn

Lord of all hopefulness

1 Lord of all hopefulness, Lord of all joy,
whose trust, ever childlike, no cares could destroy:
be there at our waking, and give us, we pray,
your bliss in our hearts, Lord, at the break of the day.

2 Lord of all eagerness, Lord of all faith,
whose strong hands were skilled at the plane and the lathe:
be there at our labors, and give us, we pray,
your strength in our hearts, Lord, at the noon of the day.

3 Lord of all kindliness, Lord of all grace,
your hands swift to welcome, your arms to embrace:
be there at our homing, and give us, we pray,
your love in our hearts, Lord, at the eve of the day.

4 Lord of all gentleness, Lord of all calm,
whose voice is contentment, whose presence is balm:
be there at our sleeping, and give us, we pray,
your peace in our hearts, Lord, at the end of the day.

CPWI Hymnal, #440, Pg 409


 

Go forth with God.

Go forth with God! The day is now

That thou must meet the test of youth.

Salvation’s helm upon thy brow,

Go, girded with the living truth.

In ways thine elder brethren trod Thy feet are set.

Go forth with God!

Think fair of all, and all men love,

And with the builder bear thy part

Let every day and duty prove

The humble witness of thy heart Go forth!

‘Tis God bids thee increase The bounds of love and joy and peace.

Behold with thine uplifted eyes

Beauty through all that sorrow seems,

And make of earth a paradise, The substance of thy dearest dreams,

Bring laughter to thy great employ, Go forth with God and find His joy.

Go forth with God! The world awaits The coming of the pure and strong,

Strike for the faith and storm the gate

That keep the citadel of wrong

Glory shall shine about thy road Great heart if thou go forth with God!
