486. O Thou Whose Feet have Climbed Life's Hill

1 O Thou whose feet have climbed life's hill,
And trod the path of youth,
Our Savior and our Brother still,
Now lead us into truth.

2 The call is Thine: be Thou the Way,
And give us men, to guide.
Let wisdom broaden with the day;
Let human faith abide.

3 Who learn of Thee the truth shall find;
Who follow, gain the goal.
With rev'rence crown the earnest mind
And speak within the soul.

4 Awake the purpose high which strives
And, falling, stands again;
Confirm the will of eager lives
To quit themselves like men.

5 Thy life the bond of fellowship,
Thy love the law that rules,
Thy name, proclaimed by every lip,
The Master of our schools.
