Representative Text

1 Father, bless our school today;
Be in all we do or say;
Be in every song we sing,
Every prayer to Thee we bring.

2 Jesus, well-beloved Son,
May Thy will by us be done;
Come and meet with us today;
Teach us, Lord, Thyself, we pray.

3 Holy Spirit, Teacher, Friend,
Grace and blessings on us send;
Unto us Thy power give;
Touch our souls that we may live.

4 Holy Father, Holy Son,
Holy Spirit, Three in One!
Glory as of old to thee
Now and evermore shall be.
