“Great Master of earth’s mighty school
Whose children are of every land,
Teach us to live the golden rule
And lead us by Thy loving hand.
Show us the way and what to do,
May we with cheer perform our part
And to ourselves be ever true.
With tender love fill Thou each heart;
This lesson may we learn of Thee
Dear Father, our Teacher Divine.”
